Chennai, Aug 31 (UNI) The Madras High Court has come to the rescue of a widow by directing the police to give proper protection to her property in Tambaram Taluk.

While admitting a petition filed by G Meena, Mr Justice K Mohanram ordered notice to the Suburban Police Commissioner and the Inspector attached to the Pallikaranai Police Station, returnable by September two.

According to the petitioner, she purchased 1.62 acres of land at Sunnambukolathur village in Tambaram.

She proposed to establish a school there and obtained approval from Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) in 1998.

Meanwhile, she was allegedly stopped by land grabbers from possessing the property peacefully. On April three, 2007, Rajendran and his henchmen prevented her from doing fencing work on the land and threatened with dire consequences, she contended.

Later, she obtained an interim injunction from the court restraining the accused from interfering with her possession of the land.

The petitioner further submitted that she has given a complaint to the Pallikaranai police, but there was no action from them. Again she lodged a complaint with the Chengalpattu Judicial Magistrate, who forwarded the same to the police with a direction to register a case.

But there was no action from the police till this date, she said.

However, the Chennai Revenue Divisional Officer, who had received a complaint from her, ordered police protection to her.

But no relief came through, she added.
