Situation in Pondy village under control

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, MAY 25. Police patrolling continues at Nettapakkam here following a clash between villagers of Nettapakkam and Kariyamanikkam on Monday.

The Superintendent of Police (South), Shanmugasundaram, told The Hindu that the situation was under control. A peace committee meeting was held at the office of the Deputy Collector (Revenue), Villianur, in the evening in which villagers of Nettapakkam and Kariyamanikkam took part and a compromise formula was arrived at. A six-member peace committee had been formed from each side to coordinate with the police for maintaining peace.

As an aftermath of a problem over damaging a cricket pitch in a school ground, there were a series of rioting instances in the village. On Monday night, people from both the villages gathered in front of the police station and indulged in stone-throwing in which a police vehicle was damaged. To quell the mob, the police fired in the air on Monday night and on Tuesday morning.

Fifteen persons were arrested and three cases registered.
