Lawyers withdraw sit-in agitation
Coimbatore: Lawyers in Coimbatore, who were
boycotting the courts and indulging in sit-in in front of the
office of SP for the past fortnight, on Monday withdrew their
agitation demanding the arrest of five police personnel, who
had assaulted one of their colleagues in a police station.
The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of
Coimbatore Bar Association (CBA) held this evening.
However, the boycott of the proceedings of the court would
continue, CBA sources said.
The meeting also welcomed the decision of Tamil Nadu Bar
Council to file a case in the Madras High Court on the
incident, they said.
A lawyer Anandeeswaran, who had gone to Thudiyalur police
station in connection with the case related to vacating of a
rented house, was reportedly assaulted by five police
personnel, needing in admission in a hospital. After a spot
inquiry, SP, Uma had suspended all the five, including one
woman SI and a woman constable and offered to hold CBCID
inquiry into entire episode.
However, the lawyers were demanding nothing short of arrest
of the police personnel and involved in sit-in in front of
SP`s office from October 10.
