60-year-old Jayaraj and his son Fenix (30) were reportedly detained by the Thoothukudi police on Monday night following an altercation over keeping Fenix's mobile phone shop open beyond permissible hours during the lockdown. 

The argument reportedly escalated when the police manhandled Jayaraj thereby prompting Fenix to intervene. The duo was then taken to Sathankulam police station and was allegedly brutally assaulted by two police officer (both sub-inspectors). 

Several eyewitnesses and bystanders privy to the information stated that after having been attacked and by the cops the duo complained of uneasiness and was rushed to a hospital, only hours after being remanded in the Kovilpatti Sub-Jail. It was later reported that Fenix had died in hospital and a few hours following that his father died too.

Both police officers have only been suspended as of now, but true justice for Jayraj and Fenix will be served once charges are pressed of first degree murder under the section 300 of IPC against the murderer police officers.
