Will we and can we see law taking its course and punishing the guilty without any further delay in #Jeyaraj and #Fenix case? The culprits cannot and should not get away. A family has lost their most loved ones. Justice delayed is justice denied. #JusticeForJeyarajAndFenix

Humanity: the quality of being humane. I’m sharing the meaning of humanity because it seems like the world has forgotten what it means.
This dastardly act cannot be forgiven and most importantly it should not be forgotten.#JusticeforJayarajAndFenix pic.twitter.com/ckidsEWjEm

For the uninitiated, Jeyaraj and Fenix, who ran a mobile phone shop in Tuticorin (Thoothukudi), were arrested last Friday (June 26, 2020) for keeping their shop open beyond permitted hours. Jeyaraj, Fenix were severely beaten to death by police personnel at the Sathankulam police station, alleged their relatives. The father-son duo’s murder only caught the attention of the media after singer Suchitra Karthik Kumar spread the news on social media in a viral video, where she revealed this inhumane act.
