Police welfare association members stage demonstration

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Members of the ‘Police Welfare Association’ staged a demonstration here on Thursday demanding that no action be taken against any police official in connection with the February 19 advocate-police clash till the completion of investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Led by the State president and retired Assistant Commissioner of Police K. Anthonysamy, the agitators, including some women, tried to take out a procession from Munroe Statue to the Secretariat. When police stopped them saying that the procession was not permitted, they demonstrated at the originating point raising slogans in support of their demands.

The association sought constitution of a welfare board for the police. An appeal was made to the Bar Council of India to take action against the advocates who set the High Court police station on fire and also attacked the police (On February 19).

Mr. Anthonysamy expressed concern that some advocates were not allowing police personnel to enter the Madras High Court campus in uniform.

He said the Director General of Police had ordered the removal of 240 posters pasted in Coimbatore to inform the police and their family members there about the procession.

Also, the Commissioner of Police, Chennai, had rejected permission to the procession on the ground that it would affect other processions permitted in the city on Thursday.
