CHENNAI: The first bench of Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice D Bharatha Chakravarthy passed the direction on hearing the plea filed by SR Ramanathan and four others of the temple town.

The petitioners sought a direction to the Cuddalore Collector and SP not to extend any police protection to people who are protesting for entry into Kanaka Sabha Mandapam.
