Chennai: The Madras high court has ordered notice to the state government on a PIL seeking direction to the state to provide adequate compensation to the land owners and others during protest against the proposed Chennai-Salem Greenfield corridor project.

The first bench of acting Chief Justice Huluvadi G. Ramesh and Justice S.S. Sundar, before which a plea filed by advocate P. Rathinam came up for hearing, directed the state government to file its counter within four weeks. 

 

Rathinam has alleged that many land owners opposed the projects. During survey activity conducted National Highways Authority, the police acted in unruly manner and committed violations. The landowners, who staged protests, were attacked by police. 

He said victims must be adequately compensation for the physical and mental agony they suffered at the hands of the police. He sought the court to constitute an inquiry committee headed by a retired judge of the high court to probe into the violation of the rights of the farmers and their well-wishers who agitated against the project. He wanted the court to constitute an expert committee to analyze impact of the project.
