The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court has issued notice to former Additional Director General of Police Shyamsundar and directed the Madurai city police to file the status report in a land dispute case following a petition seeking a probe by an external agency.

A Madurai resident Balachandran approached the court stating that in May 2010 he paid money to two persons - K V Balakrishnan and K K Govindamoorthy. He wanted to purchase a plot belonging to Krishnapuram Weavers Co operative Society and paid the amount. However, the two persons failed to execute the transaction as promised. Following this, he filed a complaint with the Tallakulam Police. However, police closed the case stating that it was a ‘mistake of fact’.

Hearing the plea, Justice G M Akbar directed the Tallakulam police to file a report in this regard and ordered notice to the retired ADGP.
