Chennai, Feb 15: Madras High Court has rejected a plea for anticipatory bail by three persons, who apprehended arrest in connection with the attack on AIADMK MP O S Manian in Nagapattinam district on January 28.

According to the prosecution, due to internal political party rivalry, Manian while attending a marriage fuction was dragged and his dhoti and clothes were removed and he was beaten up.

Denying the anticipatory bail, Justice K N Basha said 'it is a very unfortunate case wherein a member of parliament was not only harassed and humiliated but also dragged from the marriage hall and his dhoti and clothes were removed and thereafter he was assaulted by all the assured.'

The Judge said it was pertinent to note that five persons were injured in the alleged incident and one of them was still undergoing treatment in a private hospital.

'Considering all these factors, this court is of the considered view that this is not a fit case for granting the relief of anticipatory bail', the Judge said and dismissed the petitions.
