Madras High Court
Chennai, Feb 20: Sri Lankan Army has disturbed the advocates of the Madras High Court on Thursday, Feb 19. There were heavy clashes between the lawyers and Police for arresting one of their colleagues for attacking Janata Party President, Subramanian Swamy. The lawyers also burnt down a police picket inside the court premises.

The lawyers' attacks just did not seem for the arrest of their colleague, but seemed like a political party's gimmick.

Subramanya Swamy said that the lawyers attacked him because of his anti-LTTE stand.

"Those lawyers who have been identified are known to be LTTE (supporters). One of them has been arrested last night. He is also well known to be LTTE (supporter). The MDMK which is highly pro-LTTE party has been supporting this behaviour," claimed Swamy.

The Tamil Nadu Government has initiated a CBI probe into the issue.
