The Director-General of Police, K. Ramanujam, on Monday said he neither shouted at nor acted in an inhuman manner when advocates came to meet him in his office on June 6. He said there was no need for him to threaten advocates. He did not behave in an unruly manner as alleged.

Mr. Ramanujam submitted this in his counter affidavit to writ petitions before the Madras High Court that when leaders of advocates associations went to meet him, they were abused.

The officer did not meet them. The advocates wanted to meet the police chief in connection with a case registered against a group of lawyers based on a complaint from a hotelier at Kanyakumari last month.
