Threat to Nirmala in jail: Counsel
Arrested assistant professor Nirmala Devi of Aruppukottai faces threat to her life inside the Madurai Central Prison and she needs protection, said her advocate Balasubramanian here on Wednesday.
After her arrest, Nirmala Devi, assistant professor of Devanga Arts College, was lodged in the prison on Tuesday. On Wednesday afternoon, Balasubramanian met her in the jail. After getting her statements, he met the media outside the prison and said Nirmala Devi has accepted that she had spoken to the students but her voice has been edited and released on social media. It was done by other educational institutions in Aruppukottai due to stiff competition among the institutions and Nirmala was made a victim, he said. He also said Nirmala Devi had informed him that she was not feeling safe inside the prison and was facing threat to her life. So protection should be given to her, urged Balasubramanian.
As the jail warden and jailer were present, she could not speak more but when the probe by the CB-CID begins, he will talk to her in detail, he added.
