TUTICORIN: Besides the manner in which the police fired at the anti-Sterlite protesters in Tuticorin on May 22 and 23, the Coordinating Committee for People’s Inquest has found fault with the entire issue from the clamping of the prohobitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC in select areas in the city on May 21.
Former judges and senior bureaucrats under the Coordinating Committee for People’s Inquest have conducted a fact finding study into police firing. Former chief secretary of Haryana M G Devasahayam, who is one of the members of the team, said that he is yet to get a copy of the 144 order. "I suspect the entire incident involve a massive conspiracy. A 144 order should be properly communicated to the people and people should not have been allowed to gather. It has been conspired step by step
till it ended with the brutal killings," he said when the team presented its initial findings here on Sunday.
