CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has imposed a cost of 500 on a head constable, who had barged into a lower court hall in Tirupur last month and attempted to arrest a person, who came there to surrender in the last week of June. The first bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice P T Asha, which took the incident suo-motu as a PIL, however, let the Inspector and the driver free, after accepting their unconditional apology, as they did not enter into the court hall.

Not satisfying with the explanation offered and the unconditional apology tendered by head-constable Robert, the bench imposed the cost of `500 on him. Taking a serious view of the police personnel trying to arrest the people inside the court premises, Chief Justice Indira Banerjee on June 26 last said that the court would not tolerate such an attitude of the police personnel barging into courtrooms to effect the arrest and took suo-motu proceedings.
