Moved court as Swapna claimed her life was under threat, says lawyer
Kochi: Swapna Suresh has directed her lawyer Adv. Sooraj T Elanjikkal to inform the court that she is facing threat to life in jail.
The lawyer revealed the matter while responding to the jail department’s criticism over Swapna’s complaint. He pointed out that the court was convinced with the Swapna's complaint.
“I don’t know what sort of probe was carried out by the jail department. The legal scope of the probe under the department should be examined in detail,” demanded Adv. Sooraj T Elanjikkal.
On the other day, the jail department had carried out a probe and claimed that Swapna’s complaint was baseless. Repeating this, south zone jail DIG submitted an inquiry report to the jail department chief. It was following this, Swapna’s lawyer responded on the complaint and inquiry.
Swapna had complained of threat to life in jail and demanded protection from court in a complaint filed through her lawyer. In the complaint, she had claimed that two people suspected as police have visited her in jail and threatened.
Meanwhile, it is alleged Swapna told the jail officials that she just signed the petition brought by her lawyer without reading it.
