Coimbatore: Cadres of the Tamizhaga Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) staged a demonstration in front of the Red Cross Society here protesting against the alleged rights violation at the Coimbatore Central Prison.

The agitators accused the prison administration of ill-treating prisoners and their families in the name of frisking while they visited the prison. They said that the undertrials had been languishing in the prison for the last seven years and despite repeated attempts they were not being granted bail.
