AIADMK moves HC seeking police protection

The AIADMK today filed a petition with the Madras High Court seeking police protection for its General Council meeting to be held on  23 June at Vanagaram.

Justice N Sathish Kumar has consented to hear the matter on Wednesday, a day before the scheduled meet.

AIADMK’s Tiruvallur Central district secretary and former Minister P Benjamin filed a petition seeking direction to the State Police to give protection for his party meeting.

In his petition, Benjamin said the former Chief Ministers, MPs, MLAs, general council and executive committee members more than 2500 people will be participating in the  meeting.

To conduct the event peacefully, we made a representation to the DGP of police and Avadi City Commissioner to provide proper police protection to our general council meeting. However, the police didn’t respond to our representation. On June 15, We again made a representation to the police to extend the protection. The police did not react to our second representation either. We are aggrieved with the stand of the state police, the AIADMK leader said in a plea.
