Many NTK members ​​began to denounce and express that the present government has taken back the old case filed at the Adirampattinam police station against Saattai Duraimurugan, who took part in the anti CAA protest last year in support of the Islamists.

On Junes 17, when we contacted state NTK co-ordinator Mani Senthil he said, “We are seeking bail for the cases against Saattai Duraimurugan. In this case, Duraimurugan was arrested while in jail for the anti CAA protest case held last year. Duraimurugan had informed us about this, and there are no relevant documents as he has been remanded in custody. We are going to get bail along with that. ”

When asked “why he had not yet been produced in Pattukkottai court (yesterday)”, he said, “Maybe they’ll produce him in court on Monday. Contact Pattukottai, Adirampattinam police station. ”

In this regard, while talking to the Tanjore District Police Officer, he said that Duraimurugan was not arrested as they say.

If NTK members’ claims are true, Duraimurugan should have been produced in court yesterday (June 17). However, the News states that in another case he has presented in Thiruvidaimaruthur court yesterday. There is no news of a court summons to Sattai Duraimurugan in connection with the anti CAA case and a police arrest.

In this regard, Advocate Ayyanar said, “In the time where the holidays or in the case where the place of appearance is far from the place of arrest, the inmate prosecution order may take some time, but the prosecution must happen in the same day as soon as it is due (Earliest) and it is not possible to give it for a long time. ”
