Some protesters belong to ultra-left outfits: Police

Police today said some of the protesters, who took part in the pro-jallikattu agitation here, belonged to ultra-left organisations such as the CPI(ML) and Revolutionary Youth Front of India.

Police said many protesters did not have a proper answer when they were asked why were they continuing with the protest when an ordinance for conducting the bull-taming sport had been promulgated.

When police started recording their statements, they found out that some of the protesters belonged to ultra-left outfits like the Puthia Jananayakam, CPI(ML) and Revolutionary Youth Front of India.

They also recorded their statements regarding those who supplied microphones and other infrastructure facilities for organising the demonstration.

Police asked them when genuine supporters of jallikattu were satisfied with the government action, why should they want to continue with the agitation and what was their real objective.

They did not have a proper answer and soon afterwards, dispersed from the spot, police said.

At Perambalur, the protesters dispersed on being requested by the police. Some of them even hugged the police personnel before leaving the protest venue.

Police said even at Thanjavur and Kumbakonam, the protesters dispersed without arguing with the securitymen.
