CHENNAI: After 15 years, the Madras High Court has confirmed the orders of a trial court in Dharmapuri acquitting all the accused in the HR & CE Assistant Commissioner assault case.

This court has no hesitation to conclude there is no infirmity or illegality in the order passed by the trial court and as such the impugned judgment does not warrant any interference from this court. The Judicial Magistrate-1 in Dharmapuri has rightly acquitted the accused and as such the present appeal has no legs to stand further and it is liable to be dismissed, Justice G K Ilanthiraiyan said on Thursday. The judge was dismissing a criminal appeal from the DSP, CB CID, Dharmapuri.

Prosecution charges
According to the prosecution, the Assistant Commissioner was allegedly assaulted by Mullaiventhan, a former minister, and 10 others as he had refused to cancel the auction in respect of Hoganekkal Desanatheeswarar temple land for lease
