Jallikattu Protest  National Human Rights Commission notice to TN over police atrocities

The National Human Rights Commission has issued notices to Tamil Nadu government and the state police over reports of “unprovoked excesses” committed by the forces in quelling the pro-Jallikattu protests in Chennai. The NHRC on Tuesday said it has issued the notices to the Chief Secretary, Chennai Police Commissioner and Director General of Police of the state, and sought reports in the matter in two weeks.

The Commission in a statement said that it has taken suo motu cognisance of media reports that after the passage of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tamil Nadu Amendment) Bill, 2017 in the state Assembly, “police, without any prior caution, resorted to beating, arresting and damaging private property in order to disperse a large number of people gathered at landmark places in Chennai in support of Jallikattu.” Violence had broken out in the capital city and other parts of Tamil Nadu as police cracked down on protesters, even as the six-day long “Marina uprising” was called off on Monday after the state Assembly passed a bill to replace the ordinance, thus allowing the banned bull taming spot of Jallikattu.
