The recent custodial death of a father-son duo Jeyaraj and Fenix in Tamil Nadu’s Tuticorin has outraged the public. According to sources, the two men, traders by profession, were arrested for keeping their shop open beyond the time stipulated by the government. They were allegedly tortured and manhandled while they were in police custody which led to their death. The shockwaves created by the incident has transcended the borders of Tamil Nadu, as people across the country and outside are expressing their reactions over the shocking deaths. Many Marathi celebrities like Ravi Jadhav, Sonalee Kulkarni, Tejaswini Pandit have raised their voices in protest and have demanded justice for Jayaraj and Fenix.

On the other hand, Tejaswini Pandit had some pressing questions to ask. The Ye Re Ye Re Paisa actress was quick to react and condemned the shameful act that took the lives of two innocent citizens in her tweet.

This brutal police assault has come into the light even as the world struggles to get past the death of George Floyd who lost his life in a somewhat similar manner in the US. Let’s pray that Jeyaraj and Fenix are served justice, unlike the previous few incidents.
