Chennai: After a week long search, ruling DMK MLA Karunanithi’s son and his daughter-in-law were arrested in connection with the torture of domestic maid who worked at their Pallavaram residence on the city outskirts.

Police said the MLA’s son Anto Mathivanan and daughter-in-law Marlina Anne, who were wanted in connection with the alleged torture of their 18-year-old domestic help, were arrested by the Chennai Police in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday evening.

The couple was on the run after the Neelankarai All Women Police on January 19 registered a case, following a complaint from their domestic help, alleging that her employers had physically and mentally tortured her over a period of several months.

The couple would be brought to the city once all legal formalities are completed in the neighbouring state by getting transit warrant and would be produced before a judicial magistrate.

Meanwhile the domestic help underwent a medical checkup at the Government Royapettah Hospital.
