Irked by funeral noise, judge orders case against relatives, angry kin protest with corpse in Armoor
Armoor: Tension prevailed for some time when the family members and relatives of a deceased staged a sit-on protest along with the corpse near the Munsif court in Armoor on Friday. The traffic was disrupted on the nearby national highway.
The family members and relatives of a deceased person were taking out a funeral procession accompanied by drums beating and firing crackers and the bereaved relatives crying all the way.
When the procession came near to Munsif court, the judge couldn't bear the sounds of crackers and drum beating and ordered a case to be filed against the relatives of the deceased.
Strongly protesting the judge's order, the relatives claimed that they are following the tradition and staged a protest along with the body in front of the court. Traffic blocked on both sides of the road due to the protest.
The case was withdrawn with the mediation of Bar Association and the funeral was conducted.
