Kochi: A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court on Tuesday ordered police protection for a week to Asian Star Company for operating its windmills at Attappady in Palakkad.
The Bench of Justices K.M. Joseph and M.L. Joseph Francis passed the order on a petition filed by the company seeking police protection for its operation. The company alleged that members of the Attappadt Samrakshana Samithi were obstructing its operations.
The Bench made it clear that the order would not be a bar on the samithi continuing its strike through lawful means. The Bench said the order would not stand in the way of any statutory authority conducting an inquiry under any law in force.
