Koodankulam Crisis: HC instructs TN Police to ensure access to essential needs

By Newzfirst 3/22/12

CHENNAI – In a directive to the Tamil Nadu Police, the Madras High Court today ordered Police to ensure the uninterrupted access to basic amenities like electricity, food, milk and water for villagers protesting against Koodankulam nuclear power plant.

The Judges, Chief Justice EQ Iqbal and T.S Sivagnanam have reserved orders on other prayers, including lifting of Section 144 — a prohibitory order against the gathering of more than 4 people for Monday.

The Tamil Nadu police had imposed an illegal embargo on water, food, milk and fuel by blocking roads to pressurize protestors to give up their hunger strike against commissioning of nuclear power plant coming up at Koodankulam.

Villagers, including PMANE leaders Dr. SP Udayakumar and Pushparayan are on hunger strike since four days. About eight thousand villagers have relied basic supplies brought in through the sea on boats for the last 4 days
