Chennai, Nov 17 (UNI) The Madras High Court today suggested the Tamil Nadu Government and the Law colleges in the state to maintain discipline among students and ensure that they did not engage in disruptive movements in connivance with the divisive forces.

While disposing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) writ petition filed by an advocate, seeking direction to the Government to take appropriate steps by way of restraining the Law students from joining in any caste based organisations and political groups, the first bench comprising Chief Justice A K Ganguly and Justice F M Ibrahim Kalifulla said particulars were not given about the student associations with such organisations and political parties.

''It is difficult for the court to pass any direction or grant injunction, restraining an individual's freedom to join any organisation or political group on the basis of the vague petition and the court cannot pass orders in this case,'' the bench observed.

It is difficult for the court to pass an order in the absence of of any case being made out, the bench clarified.

The law college authorities should go through the admission process carefully before admitting the students, the bench added and disposed the petition.
