Chennai, Sep 14: A group of advocates, led by Madras High Advocates Association (MHAA) President R C Paul Kanagaraj met Mr R Sekar, Commissioner of Police (CoP), Greater Chennai, and lodged a complaint against some police personnel, who had allegedly foisted cases against some advocates on a trespassing incident at Nungambakkam, here yesterday.

According to Paul Kanagaraj, the incident occurred when the advocates were on their way to Anna Nagar to meet the Deputy Commissioner of Police in connection with an inquiry, earlier this week.

Seeing that some police personnel were trying to evict one Kamaal Baasha from a house at Kothari Road in Nungambakkam, the advocates entered the building to know what was going on.

However, a case was also pending in the court on the ownership of the bulding.

Later, the police had registered cases against the advocates for trespassing the building.

Through the Debts Recovery Tribunal, the building was taken over by the Bharath Housing Finance Limited in 2004.

The City Police Commissioner has assured to take up the issue and resolve it soon, Mr Kanagaraj said.
