Police are searching for a group of men, including a couple of councillors belonging to the DMK, for assaulting four senior citizens in Madambakkam on Thursday. Three former defence officers and wife of one of the officers were injured.
The injured complained that the incident was a result of animosity nurtured by a section of politicians for protests staged by residents against the location of the proposed common sewage treatment plant in Madambakkam for an underground drainage project for Madambakkam, Sembakkam and Chitlapakkam Town Panchayats.
Selaiyur police said they had registered a FIR following a complaint from Admiral (retired) Srinivasan (63), who said a section of residents, including Brigadier (retired) Mohan Thomas (62), Colonel (retired) Sundar (58) and his wife Usha Sundar (52), went to the proposed site on an invitation from TNPCB officials.
R. Kumar, Joint Chief Environmental Engineer, Admiral Srinivasan said, had come to the site on Wednesday following complaints from residents that once completed, the facility would irreversibly damage the fragile environment including water bodies around it. The residents’ charge was that the facility had not got the necessary clearance from TNPCB. Even as the residents were trying to point out their concerns to the TNPCB engineer, councillors and his supporters showered abuses on them.
When the residents tried to take the engineer to water bodies nearby, the councillors and their supporters threatened the residents and suddenly, a group of men picked up coconut fronds and wooden clubs and attacked them. The FIR has been registered against L.S.S.Mohan, councillor of Madambakkam town panchayat, (who is husband of Malliga, chairperson of the local body), councillor M.Samson and Executive Officer D.Gunasekaran, police added.
Fir against DMK councillors in assault case
Comment: All ESM and ESM Organisations should unitedly fight the corrupt Politicians and Councillors who really are goondas terrorising the innocent citizens. All Politicians are having potful of black money and indulge in benami transactions, fraud, cheating, smuggling, illegal buying and selling of real estate for huge profits in connivance of the Politicians and Police. There is immediate need for Police reforms if common citizens need security from Political hoodlums. War on terror must be fought from all angles.
