 Madurai: On Wednesday, Income-Tax (I-T) officials moved the Madras high court to cancel the bail granted to those who attacked them in order to prevent them from conducting raids in various locations linked to minister V Senthil Balaji in the Karur district. The I-T officials were attacked and manhandled by supporters of minister V Senthil Balaji.

A number of petitions submitted by I-T officials were given notice by Justice G. K. Ilanthiraiyan to the Karur district police.

The I-T officials stated in the affidavits that the principal director of income tax (investigation), Chennai, authorized the search. On May 25, a search warrant was issued for a number of locations.

On May 26, a group of people gathered at the location where the search was in progress and began verbally abusing the officials. Additionally, they were assaulted and abused. Despite informing the local police about the search, they claimed that no police were sent to assist them.

On May 27, the team continued the search after receiving security from CRPF personnel. The accused was detained by police after officials from I-T filed a complaint. On June 1, the Karur judicial magistrate (JM) I court approved their bail application.

They claimed that the counsel requested that the I-T officials submit an intervening petition. However, this was denied, and the accused was given bail in violation of natural justice principles.

Not only did the accused stop the search, but they also attacked the officials and stole some government documents. Following the attack, only a small number of officials were admitted to the hospital. The magistrate had mechanically granted the accused bail without taking this into consideration. The petitioners therefore moved the HC.
