Related writ petition

In the meantime, the third Division Bench of Justices S.S. Sundar and N. Senthilkumar heard a related writ petition filed by human rights activist Henri Tiphagne of People’s Watch in Madurai against the closure of his complaint, regarding the police firing, by the National Human Rights Commission. The petitioner contended that the NHRC had closed the complaint solely because the State government had constituted the Justice Aruna Jagadeesan Commission of Inquiry to look into the incident and had also paid a compensation of ₹20 lakh each to the families of the deceased. The litigant also took out a sub-application to implead the officials, involved in the firing incident, as respondents to his writ petition. The Bench led by Justice Sundar allowed the impleading petition on Wednesday and directed the counsel appearing for some of the impleaded respondents to file their counter within two weeks.
