CUDDALORE: The Old Town police have booked cases against 250 persons on charges of blocking traffic on Sunday.

They had gathered in front of the police station to demand a probe into the death of I. Anbarasan (22), who died in Colombo last week.

Soon after the body arrived here, the relatives kept it on the Cuddalore-Chidambaram road, refusing to complete the last rites till their doubts were cleared.

Traffic was affected for over an hour.
