Give Permission, I Will Hang Nirbhaya Convicts: TN Head Constable

CHENNAI: After reading about lack of executioner in Tihar jail to hang the Nirbhaya case convicts, a head constable from Tamil Nadu has volunteered to do the hangman’s job.

In a letter addressed to the Director General of Prisons, Tihar Jail, New Delhi, S. Subash Srinivasan, who is head constable and attached to the in-service training centre in Ramanathapuram town of Tamil Nadu has offered to serve as an executioner in the jail.

“Don’t pay me when I’m working there. I assure you the work you give will be effective. So I humbly ask you to let me work there,” he said in the letter sent to DGP of Tamil Nadu, three days ago.

A 1997 batch police constable, Srinivasan said he wrote the letter, offering to serve as an executioner after reading reports in a section of the media that the four Nirbhaya case accused, who were convicted and awarded capital punishment, could not be hanged for want of an executioner.

Having committed the heinous crime and awarded the capital punishment, it was shocking that the condemned prisoners could not be hanged for want of an executioner, he said.

This is not the first time that Subash Srinivasan has been in the news. He had made news when he was involved in removing nails from trees which were put up by advertisement agencies.

Apart from discharging his duties, Srinivasan had been engaged in social service activities ever since he joined the police force in 1997. While serving in the traffic wing at Devipattinam in the district, he supplied drinking water to the needy during summer and disposed of unclaimed bodies.

During the recent police recruitment, he prepared ‘Nilavembu kashayam’ (herbal juice) and distributed it to those who turned up for physical endurance tests to develop the immune system and escape from dengue fever.
