Idol theft case: Madras High Court seeks action against police officials
The advocate who requested that the High Court exchange Idol robbery bodies of evidence against two policemen to Chennai’s CB-CID, said he’d gotten a mysterious note which affirmed that previous Idol Wing examiner Khader Basha and others “wrongfully sold old panchaloha symbols of Hindu gods that were recuperated from a dealer in Aruppukottai, Virudhunagar,” the report said.
After Khader Basha learned police were searching for him, he slipped off the radar, Puthiya Thalaimurai (PT) reported. The news channel said Subburaj, a police constable who purportedly stole the statues with Khader, has been captured and is being interrogated. The robbery happened the distance in 2008, and no case was petitioned for a long time, PT’s report said.
