Madurai, Nov 12: The Madras High Court Bench dismissed two public interest litigation (PIL) petitions and termed it as pesonal enemity. The petitioners had claimed that the September 12 by-poll was marred by violence unleashed by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam cadres.

A Division Bench comprising Justice K Ravirajapandian and Justice PPS Janarthana Raja said that the petitions lacked the character of PIL as they were filed by All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Communist Party of India (Marxist) candidates.
