Chennai, Apr 15 (UNI) The Madras High Court today reserved orders on a petition filed by former chief minister J Jayalalithaa to provide her with adequate security.
While reserving orders, Justice M Jaichandran, directed the petitioner's counsel to file a detailed report on the nature of security required by her and the alleged lapses in her present security on or before April 21.
When the matter came up for final hearing today, Ms Jayalalithaa's council filed a memo, stating that there was no sufficient protection for her while attending public functions.
Though a huge gathering was there, sufficient number of police personnel were not deployed to give proper security and protection to her.
The counsel further submitted that the state government miserably failed to provide protection to her and the armed reserve personnel, now giving security to her, were not trained in security duty.
Hence, they must be replaced with proper trained personnel preferably from Tamil Nadu Commando force.
