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

The argument reportedly escalated when the police manhandled Jayaraj thereby prompting Bennix 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 Bennix had died in hospital and a few hours following that his father died too.
