Police officers avoid media

CHENNAI NOV. 10. The top brass of the State police today preferred to avoid mediapersons' queries with regard to the Supreme Court staying the operation of the Assembly's resolution sentencing six journalists to 15 days imprisonment.

Efforts to contact the Director-General of Police, I.K. Govind, to ascertain whether the State police had received a copy of the apex court's order were in vain. But police sources confirmed the receipt of a copy of the stay order.

The Speaker, K. Kalimuthu, who initially offered to talk to the media in his chamber, left the Secretariat in a hurry.
