CHENNAI: Unidentified persons entered Fast Track Court III at the Singaravelar Maligai, George Town, during the weekend, and are suspected to have searched for some court documents. No documents, however, are missing, police say.
The intrusion seems to have occurred either on Saturday or Sunday when the court was closed. Papers kept in a carton inside the court room were found strewn around on Monday morning, a police source said.
Initial investigations showed that some persons browsed through the case documents and could have abandoned the search as they did not find the documents they were looking for, police said. A similar incident occurred on December 4 on the same court premises and even then no documents went missing. Following the incidents, entry to the court complex has been restricted to authorised persons, police said. North Beach police are investigating.
