Karunanidhi takes a dig at police

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, JAN. 22. The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president, M. Karunanidhi, today took a dig at the police for the "manner in which the charge sheet was filed" against the Sankaracharyas in the Sankararaman murder case and the Superintendent of Police, K. Premkumar's press briefing at Kancheepuram yesterday.

Referring to Mr. Premkumar's remark that the case was "between Lord Varadaraja and Kanchi Acharya and as the incident had taken place at His temple, He was an eyewitness to the crime," Mr. Karunanidhi, asked in a lighter vein whether the Lord would be served with summons to be a witness.

`Not alien to sentiments'

In a statement here, he said that though some parties with religious affiliations had been campaigning against the case, it would be a consolation for those who strictly adhered to conventions that the manner in which the charge sheet was filed and the remarks made by the SP only showed that the State Government was not alien to their sentiments.

The police officer, who had gone to the Varadarajaperumal temple and offered prayers, before filing the charge sheet in the auspicious time, would be commended by devotees for not being inferior to the inmates of the mutt in observing rites with zeal, he said.
