The Madras High Court closed a petition seeking a direction from the court to Tamil Nadu Home Secretary to issue orders to withdraw cases filed against "innocent" fisher folk youth who took part in the anti-Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant agitation.
Days after India`s nuclear operator started loading enriched uranium fuel in the first reactor of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, hundreds of fishermen on Saturday laid siege to the Tuticorin Port.
Making some headway towards
resolution of the Koodankulam issue, anti-plant protesters
on Tuesday decided to nominate two of their members in the expert
committee to be set up by the Tamil Nadu government.
