Tiruverumbur litigants still await JM court

I will raise the issue again in the Assembly, says MLA Anbil Poyyamozhi

Several thousands of litigants in and around Tiruverumbur and surrounding villages are disappointed over the absence of a Judicial Magistrate and Munsif court in the town.

There are as many as six police stations in under Tiruverumbur taluk that has a vast geographic jurisdiction encompassing the town areas of Thuvakudi, Pappakurichi, Tiruverumbur, Navalpattu, Ellakudi, Koothapar, Palaganangudi, Krishnasamudram and Valavandankottai.

The village administrative divisions constitute Arasangudi, Asur, Elandapatti, Gundur, Kandalur, Kilakandarkottai, Kilakurichi, Kilamullakudi, Kiliyur, Kumbakudi, Kuvalakudi, Natarajapuram, Panayakurichi, Pathalapattai, Sholamadevi, Sooriyur, Tirunedunkulam and Vengur.

The District Munsif-cum-Judicial Magistrate Court in Tiruverumbur could ideally have Thuvakudi, Tiruverumbur, Ariyamangalam, Navalpattu, Boiler Plant, and all women police station under its jurisdiction, says N. Anbazhagan, president, Tamil Nadu Makkal Valarchi Kuzhu.

A delegation of the Kuzhu will soon call on Law Minister C.V. Shanmugam to convey the anguish over delay in setting up the Munsif-cum-Judicial Magistrate Court in Tiruverumbur, he adds.

At present, Tiruverumbur, Ariyamangalam, Boiler Plant, and Thuvakudi stations are under the jurisdiction of JM VI court, and Navalpattu station comes under JM III court.

The District Munsif-cum-Judicial Magistrate Court for Srirangam taluk that was opened earlier this year with Srirangam, Pettavaithalai, Kollidam, and all women police station, Srirangam stations under its fold, functions out of a rented building.

In the case of Tiruverumbur, the unused buildings of the old taluk office and panchayat union office could easily be converted into court halls, advocates say.

In a cut motion last year, Tiruverumbur MLA Anbil Poyyamozhi voiced the demand in the Assembly. “There has been no progress on this front. I will raise the issue again in the Assembly,” Mr. Anbil Poyyamozhi said.
