A case was registered against a Sub-Inspector (SI) of police, two Special Sub-Inspectors and a constable here on Sunday in connection with a clash between lawyers and the police.

A case was registered under six sections against SI Vinodha, SSIs Ravichandran and Velusamy and constable Ganesan as per the directions of the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court.

The lawyers had a quarrel with Malai Adivaram police when a lawyer went to the police station last month to enquire about the arrest of an accused.

Later, it developed into a clash as the police secured the lawyer. Following this incident, the lawyers protested against the police action, and boycotted court proceedings demanding immediate action against the police personnel who acted against the lawyer in the police station.
