Coimbatore: A 1,000-strong squad of
`Black Cats` comprising local AIADMK workers will provide
"foolproof" security to their leader Jayalalithaa during her
visit to Madurai tomorrow for a protest demonstration against
the state government.

The squad was formed a few days ago to provide
security to the former chief minister, following continuous
threats to her life, party sources said.
The party has accused the government and the police of
not ensuring adequate security cover to Jayalalithaa.

The `Black Cats` are experts in martial arts such as
karate and kung-fu. They are also proficient in some local
martial forms and sports, besides winning several awards at
the state level, they claimed.

They would be part of the AIADMK chief`s convoy from
the Madurai Airport to the venue and back, they added.
AIADMK-backed Jaya TV received more than 15 letters
and a phone call warning her not to visit the city ever since
Jayalalithaa announced the scheduled demonstration last month.

The state government decided to transfer the cases
relating to the threats to the CBI following demand by the
AIADMK.
