Actress Hemashri's father-in-law sends telegram to HC

 Karnataka High Court today directed police investigating the murder of a small screen artiste to file a report on the alleged illegal detention of a person after treating a telegram sent to it as a habeas corpus plea.

Ramaiah, father-in-law of the artiste, Hemashri, had sent a telegram to the court stating that her second son Jayagopal has been illegally detained by police in connection with her murder and had not been produced before court.

Surendrababu, a realtor and husband of Hemashri is the main accused in the case and has been in judicial custody since October 20.

When the matter came up,a Division bench headed by Justice D V Shylendra Kumar directed the jurisdictional police to file an affidavit on November seven.

The Special Public Prosecutor H S Chandramouli told the court that Jayagopal had not been illegally detained or arrested and submitted that he would file his objections on November 7.
On Oct 20, a local court had remanded Surendra Babu to 14 days judicial custody for allegedly murdering Hemashri.

Babu was arrested on October 10 in the wake of a complaint by the father of the actress, who died under mysterious circumstances.
