The Madras High Court on Monday had directed the Tamil Nadu DGP to ensure safety of the public and pro-Jallikattu protesters holding their stir peacefully even as the state government claimed that anti-social elements have infiltrated the students protests in the last few days.

Till January 19, it was protest by students, but after that anti-social elements had infiltrated them, state Advocate General R Muthukumarasamy said, quoting intelligence reports.

The submissions were made by the AG when petitions by two of the protesters seeking a direction to the police not to harass them came up before the court.

In his oral orders, Justice R Mahadevan directed the state DGP to ensure safety of public and pro-Jallikattu protesters conducting their stir ‘peacefully’.

However, he said police can take action if the protesters violated the law or in the event of any untoward incident.
