The trial in the case was adjourned twice as Nandhakumar, the then Inspector of Pamban Police Station, failed to depose as the main witness, despite summons issued to him on November 24, 2015 and February 1 this year.

The police said Nandhakumar, now the ACP of Tirunelveli, had registered cases against one Babu of fishermen's colony in Pamban for allegedly stabbing his neighbour Thomas Sanjeevaraj and injuring him seriously in May 2014.

As he failed to appear for the trial, Judicial Magistrate Chandran ordered issue of arrest warrant against Nandakumar.
