Rahul Gandhi security lapse: Madras High Court issued notice to Centre and Tamil Nadu Government

CHENNAI: The Madras High Court today issued notices to the Tamil Nadu and Central governments on a PIL seeking a judicial probe in alleged security lapses during Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s visit to the Rajaji Hall here to pay homage to departed DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi.

Advocate A.P. Suryaprakasam also sought a direction to the State to pay a compensation of ₹20 lakh to the families of each of those who had died on that day. He wanted compensation even to those who were injured because of alleged official failure in making proper arrangements for the people to pay their last respects.

The petitioner said the police had resorted to lathi charge on the public who came to pay tribute to the departed leader as a result of which three people died.

A Division Bench comprising justices S Manikumar and Subramonium Prasad, which heard the petition filed by advocate A P Suryaprakasam, posted the matter for further hearing on September 14.
