The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Wednesday demanded that the State government lift the prohibitory order under Section 144 of the CrPC, which was promulgated in the district following the Paramakudi firing. G. Ramakrishnan, CPI (M) State secretary, told The Hindu after meeting relatives and friends of those killed in Parmakudi police firing, that movement of people had been restricted in the district due to the prohibitory orders. “There is no need to continue with Section144. Many feel it is an act to suppress the people's rights, especially Dalits. The prohibitory orders should be lifted immediately,” he said.

Stating that male members of various families in Dalit dominated villages had been forced to hide for several days, he said cases were foisted on them by the police in connection with the Paramakudi riots.

Earlier, he handed over a cheque of Rs.25,000 each to the kin of those killed in Paramakudi incident on behalf of the CPI(M). Mr. Ramakrishnan also visited Pachery village near Kamudhi and met the family members of Palanikumar, who was killed a day before the Immanuel Sekaran memorial day.
