CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has directed the State government to submit all video clippings relating to the police firing incidents during the anti-Sterlite protests at Thoothukudi, in which 13 persons were killed.When a batch of writ petitions and PILs praying for CBI probe into the matter came up again, the first bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice P T Asha passed an order to this effect, on Monday.

The CJ had already expressed her opinion as to why the matter should not be entrusted to the CBI, twice, earlier. She reiterated the same when the batch of PILs from advocates Jimraj Milton, Parvendhan, Pavendhan, Nam Tamilar Katchi chief Seeman and VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan came up on Monday. Why not the issue be transferred to the CBI, since the same is against the State police, the bench had already asked.
