Book case on T’malai collector, Tiphagne urges CM 

Madurai: Human Rights Defenders Federation’s (HRDF) Tamil Nadu national secretary Henri Tiphagne in a press statement urged the state government to register a case against Tiruvannamalai collector and police officials who booked activist Arul under Goondas Act. Tiphagne thanked Chief Minister MK Stalin for revoking the Act against Arul. “This incident shows that officials deliberately discriminate against farmers. It is regrettable that this happened under the DMK rule which has portrayed itself as working for social justice,” Tiphagne said. He further urged Stalin to take departmental action against Tiruvannamalai collector, adding that he should provide compensation to farmers from his own pocket. Police officials associated with the case should also be punished, Tiphagne added.
