DSP kept in police custody at court for violating decorum

Tirupur: Avinashi deputy superintendent of police P Paramasamy was kept in police custody at the principal and sessions court in the city on Monday after the court found him to have violated court decorum on October 9.
A case registered under the Scheduled Caste/scheduled Tribes (prevention of atrocities) Amendment Act, 2015 had come up for trial before principal district judge S Alli October 9. For the case registered at Perumanallur police limits, Paramasamy — being the investigation officer and a prosecution witness — appeared before the court.

But the officer failed to answer properly when public prosecutor questioned him. The 57-year-old man even raised voice inappropriately before the judge.

Subsequently, the court issued a show-cause notice to Paramasamy, seeking explanation for violating the court’s decorum. It also recommended west zone inspector general of police and Tirupur superintendent of police to take departmental action against him.

When the case came up again on Monday, judge Alli conducted inquiry about the decorum violation with Paramasamy. He admitted to making a mistake, following which, the court found him guilty under Section 228 of IPC (Intentional insult or interruption to public servant sitting in judicial proceeding). The court directed him to be in police custody at the court till its closure.
