COIMBATORE: A young woman recently lost her life in a major road traffic accident on the Anaikatti-Thadagam Road, reportedly caused by two motorcycle-borne men who were riding under the influence of alcohol, which they consumed at a liquor outlet in the vicinity.

Following the tragic incident, residents of the area petitioned Coimbatore district collector K Rajamani, to ensure that the Tasmac outlet which is temporarily shut is closed permanently and that too immediately.

 

However, on the same day, tribals who dwell in Anaikatti also submitted a petition to the district collector, urging the concerned Tasmac outlet, which according to sources is run by kin of a legislator, is not shut. In the petition it was stated that a majority of residents are daily wage workers who consume alcohol as a relief from hard daily labor. If the outlet is shut, those who consume alcohol will be forced to purchase the same at a higher cost, the petition stated.Meanwhile, on grievances day, members of The Tamil Nadu Arts and Literature Association petitioned the district collector requesting him to ensure that the 3,500-odd old cave paintings that were discovered in the Kumitipathi, Ponparappi and Vettaikaran mountains in Coimbatore district are preserved. In the petition it was stated that funds must be allotted to strengthen the security in the area.
