Accused in Subasri case arrested

Former AIADMK councillor S.Jayagopal was arrested yesterday a fortnight after the death of Subasri who died after an illegal banner fell on her. He was arrested from a hotel in Denkanikottai, Krishnagiri district. He would be produced before a magistrate in Chennai.
Cases have been registered against him and his relative by the St .Thomas Traffic Investigation Wing under Section 304(ll) of the IPC (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and also by the Pallikaranai police for putting up illegal banners under the Tamilnadu Open Places (Prevention of Disfigurement) Act 1959. Jayagopal was said to be absconding from his house in Kovilambakkam but public pressure and the displeasure shown by the Madras High Court made the police to go all out and track him down. Subasri’s parents are hopeful that the accused Jayagopal  will be punished by the judiciary.
