Pollachi sexual assault case transferred to CBI

Chennai: Pollachi sexual assault case has now been transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit has accorded consent to the transfer.

The Tamil Nadu state government has issued an order invoking Section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946. The act makes the consent of states mandatory for the CBI to exercise its power and jurisdiction in the state.

The CBI will investigate the two cases which were originally registered at the Pollachi east police station, Coimbatore district, bearing the crime numbers of 59 and 60/2019.

The case was earlier being dealt with the Crime Branch-CID.

Several organisations staged protests in Chennai demanding the case to be investigated thoroughly and seeking action against the accused.
