As the outrage over custodial deaths of Sathankulam traders Jeyaraj and Bennix soars across the country, many popular faces have sought justice for the father-son duo. Some even took to the streets of Thoothukudi to demand justice for the two who were brutally tortured while in police custody. Now, Rajinikanth has expressed his condolences to Jeyaraj’s wife over a telephonic conversation. Though details of the conversation are yet to be out, a source close to the actor confirmed the conversation.
On the other hand, Kamal Haasan in a statement, who condemned the incident, said that the government’s response to providing justice to the victims has been superficial. He added that whoever involved in the brutal torture of Jeyaraj and Bennix should be brought to justice as such incident could happen to anyone and we should ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
