The recent custodial death of a father and son who ran a cell-phone shop in Tuticorin has outraged public opinion and many celebrities have raised their voices in protest against police violence.

The shock-waves created by the incident have transcended the borders of Tamil Nadu, unlike in several earlier incidents, and travelled across the country and outside, thanks mainly to a very descriptive video in English posted by singer Suchitra.

 

Just as they did for various causes earlier, such as the pro-Jallikattu agitation, the ‘Save the Fishermen’ protest and the Pollachi rape case, many K’town celebrities have protested against the death of the father-son duo, Jayaraj and Bennicks Fenix.

The two men were arrested on the charge of keeping their shop open beyond the time stipulated by the government during lockdown. The traders’ family has alleged that the two died as a result of torture and police brutality.

Jayam Ravi, Vishal, Khushbu, Aishwarya Rajesh, Hansika, Lawrence, Shanthanu, Athulya, Karthik Subbaraj, Pa. Ranjith, Gautham Karthik and D. Imman are among the Kollywood celebrities who have added their voices to the demand for justice for the two men.  

Priyanka Chopra, Harbajan Singh, Kajal Agarwal, Parineeti Chopra, Genelia, Rohini Singh and Sashi Tharoor too joined the fray, condemning the police in no uncertain terms.
The hashtag #JusticeForJayarajand-Fenix is trending on top slot.
