Further, Sylendra Babu credited the Coimbatore city police officials, who investigated the case diligently and nabbed the offenders.

“Police collected and submitted all evidences in the court to get death penalty for the accused. The death penalty awarded by the Mahila Court in Coimbatore was upheld by the High Court and it has been confirmed by the Supreme Court by dismissing the review petition. This is a recognition for the job done by the police,” he added.  

Manoharan and co-accused Mohanakrishnan, who was later shot dead in an encounter, had picked up the minor girl and her younger brother from outside a temple on October 29, 2010, when they were going to school. They had tied the hands of both minor siblings and brutally gang-raped the girl before trying to kill them by poisoning.

As they did not die of poisoning, the two men tied their hands and threw them into the Parambikulam-Aliyar Project canal where they drowned.

During the course of the investigation, the police shot down Mohanakrishnan on November 9, 2010, when he tried to escape from the police custody, after he grabbed a pistol and shot at cops in a police vehicle.

We have decided to send a mercy petition to the President,” said Ramasamy, who makes a living by selling flowers in Pollachi.
