Coimbatore: Students of the Government Law College at Marudhamalai on Monday resorted to a demonstration condemning the delay in disbursal of financial assistance for the educational expense of the Backward Classes and SC/ST students.
The students said that the Government used to extend financial assistance ranging from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 7,000 and it was due for disbursal in August 2010.
They accused the college management of deliberately delaying the disbursal by slowing down the despatch of forms to the Collectorate for processing. Following the demonstration, talks were held with the students and it was assured to sort out the problem at the earliest.
A group of advocates staged a black flag demonstration protesting against the alleged killing of an Indian fisherman by the Sri Lankan Navy within the Indian maritime boundary.
The demonstrators raised slogans flaying the Union Government for its failure and the Sri Lankan Government for barbaric attitude of the defence forces. They also sought the closure of the Sri Lankan Embassy in India and the Indian Embassy at Colombo signalling the snapping of any sort of bilateral relationship.
Fire at exchange
Air-condition machines were gutted at the Pappampatti Exchange of the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited at Sulur. The fire was noticed by those who ventured out for a morning walk. After a fight for nearly two hours, the fire was put off. Telephone services in the area remained affected.
Nazir, an accused in police custody with the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Crime Branch CID for interrogation was admitted to the convict ward of the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital. The SIT had taken police custody of Nazir and another accused for interrogating them in the case relating to the planting of an explosive at the Coimbatore Press Club in December 2002. High security has been posted at the convict ward of the CMC Hospital.
