THANJAVUR: The members of Dalit community staged a road blockade near Papanasam on Sunday against the alleged high-handedness of police personnel of Kabisthalam police station.

According to sources, Anand (35) of Erukkattur in Tiruvarur district and his wife Geetha (32) visited their relatives at Kamarajar colony in Kabisthalam for a festival on Saturday. During the festival a feud erupted between Anand and his relative Mani over a money related issue. Following this Anand along with Geetha visited the Kabisthalam police station to lodge a complaint.

The personnel in the station refused to accept the petition. It is alleged that they abused Anand and also tried to misbehave with Geetha. Following this the relatives of Anand and the public gathered in front of the Kabisthalam police station and staged a road blockade on Tiruvaiyaru-Kumbakonam road demanding action against the police officials who acted with highhandedness.

Shivaji Arulselvam, DSP of Papanasam rushed to the spot and held talks with the agitators. The agitation was withdrawn later. Meanwhile a heavy posse of police was posted in the area.
