Prime suspect in Dr Subbiah‘s murder surrenders

CHENNAI: Advocate B Williams, who is the prime suspect in the Dr S D Subbiah case, surrendered before the seventh additional sessions court here on Monday.
On September 14, 2013, a gang attacked with weapons when he came out of in Raja Annamalaipuram. The neurologist died on September 23.

The Abhiramapuram police, who registered a case and conducted investigations, filed a chargesheet against 10 accused people, including Williams, before the XXIII metropolitan magistrate at Saidapet.

The Madras high court granted bail to Williams and a few other accused on February 2, 2015. The police moved the court seeking cancellation of Williams’ bail, as he had threatened some witnesses in the case.

The Madras high court cancelled his bail on April 28 last. The court restrained the police from arresting Williams until May 15, giving him time to file appeal in the Supreme Court. However, the apex court rejected his bail plea on May 28.

As Williams failed to appear before the seventh sessions court in the subsequent hearing on June 8, judge Shanthi issued a non-bailable warrant against him.

Williams and his family members had been absconding. Special public prosecutor N Vijayaraj recently submitted a petition in the court to declare Williams as ‘proclaimed offender.’

After his surrender on Tuesday, the court remanded him in judicial custody.
