Coimbatore: Kausalya, wife of the Dalit student Shankar slain at Udumalpet last week in a horrific ‘honour killing’ case in broad daylight, appeared before the Palladam Magistrate near here on Monday to record a statement in the case.
Kausalya, undergoing treatment at the Coimbatore Government hospital for the injuries she received during the attack, was taken in an ambulance van to the Palladam court amid tight police protection, where she appeared before the judicial magistrate G. Krishnan.
