The Madras High Court today said it expected that CISF may be deployed in its Madurai Bench by the end of this month.
The First Bench, comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice R Mahadevan, while considering a suo motu PIL on deployment of CISF security in the Madurai bench, said, “It is expected that CISF will be deployed in Madurai bench by the end of this month.”
Security of the Madras High Court complex was taken over by CISF personnel from the state police on November 16 last year after lawyers created a ruckus while agitating for declaration of Tamil as official language of the court and over contempt of court proceedings against two Madurai-based Bar association leaders.
The High Court wanted the CISF cover in its Madruai bench also.
The bench posted the matter for further hearing to July 21.
