CHENNAI: The Avadi police are likely to exhume the body of a 40-year-old woman after her teenage daughter alleged suspicion in her death and filed a police complaint.
Police said R Sivaranjini, 19, a first-year student at a woman’s college in the city, filed a complaint that her mother Sivakala, 40, was found unconscious in their house at Kattupakkam near Poonamallee on December 7.
Her younger brother, Silambarasan had informed her about it over the phone when she was in college. Their father, Raveendran, 46, was beside her mother in an inebriated state.
They had taken their mother to the hospital where she was declared dead. In her complaint, Sivaranjani had said that her father had suggested Sivakala’s body be taken to their native village in Villupuram districts for the final rites.
The body was buried in Villupuram district on December 8. A week later, Sivaranjani filed a complaint with the Poonamallee police claiming she has doubts over her mother’s death as her mother had sent her an audio message before her death, in which she claimed that she received threats from Raveendran’s paramour.
Police said Raveendran works as a bus driver in a private school and is allegedly in a relationship with a fellow worker in the school. The other woman had allegedly issued death threats to Sivakala several times.
