Woman seeks SP's help to release hubby jailed in AP

Coimbatore: A 29-year-old woman from Ondipudur on Tuesday submitted a petition with the superintendent of police office claiming that her husband was charged with a false case and arrested by Andhra Pradesh police about a week ago. She sought the SP’s intervention in releasing her husband from prison.
In her complaint, Vaneeshwari said the Rajahmundry police charged her husband Ravichandran, who is in transport business, with stealing bags of rice that had to be delivered to a customer in Kollam. An FIR was registered against him under sections 407 (criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and was arrested.
Vaneeshwari said her husband had leased a lorry on November 1 and was transporting goods within the state. “On February 4, the Rajahmundry police called him and questioned him about whereabouts of sacks of rice that went missing within their limit on January 29,” she said, adding, “We did not have a clue. The last trip the lorry had was on January 27. We parked the lorry in front of our house at Ondipudur for the next couple of days and then it was left in a private parking lot.”
The Rajahmundry police visited us on February 11 and told my husband to accompany them to Andhra Pradesh for inquiry purpose and drove away the lorry too, she said. “We submitted toll gate tickets and parking lot tickets to prove that the lorry was in Coimbatore. However, they arrested my husband and lodged him in prison,” she said.
She alleged that police were thrashing her husband to make him admit to the crime that he did not commit. Instead of arresting the culprits who stole the rice using a vehicle with fake registration plate, the police had arrested my husband, she said.
Receiving the petition, police officials assured to look into it.
