Padmavathi of repatriated Indian refugee camp at ayanoor in Karur, stated that she and her daughter were repatriated Indians from Sri Lanka.
On March 7, the police personnel came to the house of her daughter at the refugee camp and informed her that her husband, who had been arrested in a murder case and was in jail, wanted to meet her.
The petitioner and her daughter were taken in a police van without following the law and the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in the D.K. Basu case. They were taken to an unknown place at Karur.
Enroute, her daughter was seperated and taken away by the police personnel to a faraway building, Padmavathi alleged. Later, the woman and her daughter were dropped at the Rayanoor camp.
