Protest to lift the Ban on Jallikattu was started last week in Madurai and Chennai mainly while people from other parts of the state also started to protest for justice. The protest was going fine till 22/01/2017 (Yesterday). Yesterday since 6 o’clock there was a confusion between the students whether to stop the protest or to continue it after Hip Hop Thamizha Aadhi and Sivasenapathy asks to stops the protest.
Even after they asked to stop the protest, the students were not sure whether to stop or continue the protest, most of them continued the protest. Then the problem started as the police officials started to hit and chase protesters from Marina today morning. After few hours a police station was set to fire by some unknown people.
Local Media reported frustration students set the police station under fire. The truth is students are still waiting with patience without doing any violence But some goons and even some police are damaging public properties and attacking women. Actor Arvind Swamy shared a Video in his twitter account as an evidence. Look at it yourself below.
