MADURAI: People’s Watch, a human rights organisation based in Madurai, has demanded a CB-CID inquiry into the death of autorickshaw driver A Manikandan, who died in police custody, on Saturday morning.

CHENNAI: The CB-CID police probing the anti-Sterlite activist R S Mugilan missing case on Thursday informed the Madras high court that they have got “important lead” in the case.

Tuticorin: A year after 13 anti-Sterlite protesters in Tuticorin were killed in police firing, civil rights activists have accused the government of doing little other than providing Rs 20 lakh compensation and a bottom rung government job to the victims’ kin. Not one government official has been held accountable so far for the incident and the government’s disinterest in providing rehabilitation to the devastated families is appalling, say activists.
Madurai: Observing that it is the fundamental right of the people to protest in a peaceful manner, the Madurai bench of the Madras high court has directed the sub-divisional magistrate/ sub-collector of Tuticorin not to pass any final orders in the proceedings initiated under Sections 107 and 111 CrPC against anti-Sterlite protesters. It further directed the police not to issue summons to the protesters.
