Justice Kolse Patil’s team also said that charging the protesters with sedition and waging war against the state was irrational and that police action had created “fear psychosis” in the area.
Tamil Nadu Police though said that they had acted “responsibly” and had been attacked by villagers.
A protest against fuel loading in the nuclear power plant that had been going on for several days in Kudankulam was broken up by police after the Madras High Court gave its green signal to operationalise the plant. Police who had cordoned off the area around the plant had been taken by surprise after the protesters approached the plant by walking along the beach, leading to a stand-off. The protests are still continuing.
