CHENNAI: Advocate-General AL Somayaji, representing the Tamil Nadu government, and Assistant Solicitor General S Sreenivasan, representing the Union government, were directed by the first bench of the Madras High Court to sit together with the Registrar-General to hold discussions on the issue relating to deployment of CISF personnel on its premises and other financial matters, on April 5.

When the suo motu writ relating to CISF security for the High Court came up before the bench of Chief Justice SK Kaul and Justice MM Sundresh on March 30, the bench observed that there was no progress since the last date of hearing. When the matter came up before the bench on March 9 last, the bench pointed out that no GO has been passed with regard to various needs of the CISF personnel deployed and directed the government to expedite allotment of necessary funds. The AG submitted that two GOs have been passed to meet some of the needs and for other requirements and prayed for some more time, as the financial year was coming to an end.
