Chellappa also claimed that when he begged Singh not to beat his newly married brother Mariappan, the ASP crushed his testicles with his left hand and kicked him on his chest. Mariappan has been so traumatized by the attack that he has been unable to leave his bed and can only have some juice once a day as he is unable to eat. Chellappa further alleged that Singh had broken the teeth of six persons from their side and two persons from the other group. They were all made to sit in their underwear as they were thrashed with a lathi. Singh reportedly threatened them to tell the judicial magistrate that they were injured when they fell off their bike or from a coconut tree, and they complied fearing the safety of their female relatives.
Another victim also alleged that Singh had beaten him as he did not cooperate while he removed his teeth, and the teeth of his two friends were also removed. The allegations have prompted Tirunelveli Collector KP Karthikeyan to order an inquiry to be conducted by the sub-divisional magistrate-cum-sub-collector of Cheranmahadevi, as per police standing order. The Tirunelveli SP P Saravanan said an official probe had been ordered by the Collector.

Advocate Maharajan of Nethaji Subash Sena has charged that Singh had removed the teeth of about 40 persons in his division so far, though TNIE has not been able to independently verify this claim.

His case has once again raised concerns about custodial torture in India and the need for stricter laws to prevent such incidents. The alleged brutality of the police officials is a violation of human rights, and the victims have the right to justice and compensation. It is imperative that the authorities conduct a fair and impartial investigation and take appropriate action against those found guilty. The incident serves as a grim reminder of the need to hold law enforcement officials accountable for their actions and ensure that custodial torture is eradicated from our society.
