A sentence in the penultimate paragraph of “No evidence of torture on Ilavarasan’s body” (July 18, 2013, some editions) read: “The report of forensic experts from AIIMS, New Delhi will be handed over to …” The sentence is redundant. It actually contradicted a statement in an earlier paragraph which correctly read: “The sources said the report of forensic experts from AIIMS, New Delhi, was handed over to the investigating officer of the case, …”

The sentence that followed it should be recast to read: “Further investigations by a special police team will be overseen directly by ...” The words – police and team - had been left out inadvertantly.
