The Madras High Court on Monday ordered the setting up of a team of four doctors to conduct the postmortem of P Ramkumar, the accused in the Swathi murder case who reportedly committed suicide at Puzhal Central Prison on Sunday.

The court asserted that the doctors should ensure a fair postmortem without leaving any room for complaints or grievances.

Ramkumar was the prime accused in the murder of 24-year-old IT professional Swathi on a railway platform here on June 24. Ramkumar’s father R Paramasivan had sought a doctor of his choice to be present during the autopsy. Turning down his plea, the court said the authorities had already constituted a three-member team and that the court would nominate another senior professor from a government hospital.

Refusing to accept Paramasivam’s demand for a doctor of his choice to witness the postmortem, the court said such a demand may be accepted only if the petitioner has solid reasons to discredit the team already appointed.

In the absence of any credible reason to discredit the team, the court said, they are of the view that “confidence should be reposed on those doctors that they will discharge their duties in a free and fair manner, unbiased and uninfluenced by any external factors”.

Meanwhile, in a statement on Monday, DMK chief M Karunanidhi raised doubts about the police’s suicide theory on Ramkumar’s death. “How can an inmate commit suicide inside a prison and what sort of security is there in the prison?” he asked. Karunanidhi demanded action against prison officials responsible for the death of Ramkumar.

    Ok. Here is the chronology of events.lt;br/gt;1) Swathi gets her job in Infosys and is posted in Bangalorelt;br/gt;2) She works in Oracle and VB and handles the account of a Swiss banklt;br/gt;3) The Swiss bank transfers its database to Infosys for processing and maintaining the account lt;br/gt;4) Information breach happens and the Swiss Bank reports to Infosyslt;br/gt;5) Infosys doesn't want to make a hue and cry but as advised to its management quietly informs the I n t e l l i g e n c e a g e n c i e slt;br/gt;7) Once the team lead gets inkling of that, fearing for his life quietly copies the database with the help of Swathi in a laptop and a pen drivelt;br/gt;6) I n t e l l i g e n c e a g e n c i e s first murder the team lead of the project who is a male from Bangalorelt;br/gt;7) Before the murder he is investigated and he spills the information that he has given the laptop and pen drive to Swathi.lt;br/gt;8) Swathi is hared to return the laptop and pen drive. She is ured of her safety. lt;br/gt;8.1) Infosys transfers her to Chennai as advised by I n t e l l i g e n c e A g e n c i e s so that she can be killed there. This would prevent the link between her lead's killing and her killing. Both can be made to look like isolated incidents. lt;br/gt;9) Intelligence agencies want to finish her after she hands over the pen drive and laptop and plans to kill her.lt;br/gt;10) They come to know that she is in love with Bilal Sidik.lt;br/gt;11) They utilize this information and want to make the murder look like it would be because of her refusal to marry Bilal Sidik and was done by him.lt;br/gt;12) I n t e l l i g e n c e a g e n c i e s also want to send a positive(to Swiss banks and all those foreign companies that do business with Indian Software companies) message that their data is safe and they are there to provide security to them. So they decide to make Swathi's murder a very public and sensational murder. IA also planned to make the murder look like a religious murder to create trouble in Tamil Nadu and set a base for BJP through brahmins.lt;br/gt;13) They contact Rajnath Singh and Modi and both give a green signal for the murder.lt;br/gt;14) IA engages Karuppu Muruganantham, a TN BJP functionary and gives him the blueprint.lt;br/gt;15) TN CM Jayalalitha is directly contacted by IA and briefed about the plan. She is ured that all her legal cases will be taken care of.lt;br/gt;16) Meanwhile many RSS and Hindu Munnani functionaries are asked to make social media comments against Muslims without telling them about the impending murder.lt;br/gt;17) Karuppu Muruganantham and his henchmen follow Swathi on that day and brutally murder her in front of many in the railway station.lt;br/gt;18) Immediately YG Mahendran(his daughter is a BJP functionary) creates a message in Facebook blaming Bilal Sidik as the murderer hoping that it will make people believe that it is a religious murder and increase the prospects of BJP in TN.lt;br/gt;19) It is immediately known that YG Mahendran is a lier and had tried to create communal riots e x p l o i t i n g this murder and thereby try to establish a case for BJP's growth in TNlt;br/gt;20) As already planned Jayalalitha does not take action immediately after murder and expecting that there will be communal riots. So she takes her sweet time and arrests an innocent after ensuring her that he doesn't not have any influential background.lt;br/gt;21) Jaya orders arrest of Ramkumar and also orders that he should not be able to speak to media.lt;br/gt;22) Tamilnadu Police(TP) gets a govt Doctor with them and goes to Ramkumar's home, asks the doctor to cut his throat so he will not be able to speak.lt;br/gt;23) Ramkumar is arrested as if he is a terrorist and brought back to Chennailt;br/gt;24) Meanwhile a person called Dileepan Mahendran voluntarily investigates the case and releases a detailed and clear video in YouTube and the intentions behind Swathi's murder.lt;br/gt;25)He is illegally arrested and sent to jail on the orders of Jayalalithalt;br/gt;25.1 The brahmin bstrd judge Prakash refuses to handover the case to CBI because he has also been contacted by IA.lt;br/gt;26. I n t e l l i g e n c e a g e n c i e s ask Jayalalitha to finish Ramkumar since his existence is a risk for all the stake holderslt;br/gt;27. And there you are. Ramkumar is murdered and made to look like a suicide.lt;br/gt;28. I n t e l l i g e n c e a g e n c i e s have also ordered Jayalalitha to finish off Dileepan Mahendran. She has no options but to carry out the order. May be next month.lt;br/gt;29. Judges are selected and kept ready for all the cases against Jayalalitha. They are tutored on what the outcome of these cases should be and what benefits those judges will be getting.lt;br/gt;30. Cases come for hearing one by one and in all cases Jayalalitha is relived for want of solid evidence.lt;br/gt;31. All foreign companies that are having shops in India are appraised of the actions India has taken to ure their investments and security for their business.lt;br/gt;32. IA officers involved are not just promoted but have a lavish and unaccounted life of enjoyment and urance of lucrative positions to their relatives in all those companies in India and in foreign lands.(like Rajat Gupta and Anil Kumar of McKinsey Both are criminals). All tax benefits are provided to them. Else it will be the case of Vodafone and Nokia which are being hared by slapping Himalayan tax.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Bottom line:lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;WHERE THERE IS A BRAHMIN, THERE IS A CRIMINALlt;br/gt;WHERE THERE IS A CRIMINAL, HE IS A BRAHMINlt;br/gt;WHERE THERE IS NO CRIMINAL,A BRAHMIN CREATES A CRIMINALlt;br/gt;WHERE THERE IS NOT EVEN IONS, A BRAHMIN HAS THE CRIMINAL CAPABILITY TO CREATE A CRIMINAL AMONG ATOMS.

    Nobody need to make brahmins extinct. They themselves are doing that will make them extinct. The defensive fear in you is all there for people to understand.

    One can still wish away the existence of brahmins. Like it happened in 1947 when stan brutally kicked out millions of brahmins(falsely propaized as Hindus).

    Ts sivagnanamj.... In my humble opinion a judge par excellence...lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The issue was taken up by him inspite of it being very sensitive... And not considered by CJH..lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The issue for adjudication.... Need for independent postmortem report which is crucial for coming to conclusion that it is a suicide as per police..or murder as per others...lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The prayer is for including a doctor of the pettioner choice in the team.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This learned judge beautifully analysed..the point of law... Rejected the plea saying...there was no allegation of bias...and evidence to dis credit the present team.pointed out that...there is no presumption of bias against govt doctors....lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;But at the same time emphasised the need for absolute fairness in the conduct of the team....lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Sivagnanamj... ..as his name suggest s is a judge with divine personality..amazing judicial skills .p...I love to go to see his court...when ever I visit HC...
