CHENNAI: Madras High Court has imposed a compensation of `50,000 on a house owner in Gudalur in the Nilgiris district for throwing the belongings of a tenant on to the street.

Justice B Rajendran directed house owner Kathirvel to pay the amount to the tenant A Jagajothi.

According to Jagajothi, she and her family were living in a rented portion opposite the government school on Ovari Salai in Gudalur. Owing to certain differences of opinion with the school headmaster, her husband had lodged a complaint with the police. A while later, owing to outside pressure, her house owner tried to evict her in the middle of her daughter’s academic year. As her requests for extension of time did not help, she filed a civil suit before a local court. Even while the suit was pending, the house owner had thrown out all her belongings on to the street. As police did not take any action, she filed the petition.
