The Inside Story


13 Years After She was 'Murdered', Madurai Woman Proves She is Alive

It took Mekala four years and a DNA report to prove that she is alive and not murdered in 2002. In 2011, Mekala had appeared before government officials in Madurai, which was a dramatic twist in the case. The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court has accepted her claim and confirmed it with a DNA report.

Justice S Nagamuthu ordered Mekala and her father to undergo a DNA test on July 6th last year, which confirmed that Mekala was alive and not murdered. The Judge also set aside an order of a Tuticorin district court, which concluded that Mekala had been murdered, though all four accused were acquitted. The Court refused to take criminal action against the police personnel who wrongly declared the woman dead, saying that their finding was based on superimposition results and they could not be blamed for the same.

The Court has ordered the state government to give a compensation of Rs. 4 lakh each to four persons arrested in connection with the case. They were detained in prison for 93 days. The matter came to the Court when two persons, arrested in connection with the 'murder', sought compensation for malicious prosecution and registration of criminal cases against the concerned police personnel.
