Several Tamil cinema celebrities have expressed shock and demand justice over the custodial death of P Jeyaraj and his son Fenix, who were picked up for questioning by the cops in Sathankulam for violating lockdown rules.

The father and son were allegedly beaten to death by the police. The police picked up the father-son duo after they kept their mobile shop open during lockdown. While Fenix died at the Kovilpatti General Hospital on June 22, his father died on June 23.

After the news broke out, several Tamil film celebrities took to Twitter demanding justice for Jayaraj’s family. Actor-politician Khushbu Sundar tweeted, “Will we and can we see law taking its course and punishing the guilty without any further delay in #Jeyaraj and #Fenix case? The culprits cannot and should not get away. A family has lost their most loved ones. Justice delayed is justice denied. #JusticeForJeyarajAndFenix (sic).”
