The petitioners, seeking sites instead of cash said that the Tamil Nadu had allocated sites to all the 754 STF over there along with a loan of Rs five lakh and medal way back in 2005.

Mentioning that the State STF members are still struggling to get their promised sites and cash by the government, the petitioners submitted that all the members in Tamil Nadu were immediately given promotion within ten days of the death of forest brigand.
