Panic prevailed in the Madras High Court in India following a murderous attack on a 55-year-old lawyer by his son on its premises.

Advocate A. Manimaaran, who occupies chamber No. 219 in the Additional Law Chamber, was attacked by M. Rajesh with a sickle at 1.30 p.m.

Family feud

According to local media reports, the attack was the result of a family feud. Rajesh, who was born to the advocate’s first wife, had visited his father in his chamber to discuss his sister’s marriage.

In the ensuing wordy duel, the son took out a sickle and slashed Manimaran on his head and face.

The incident has raised concerns about security inside the court complex.

The attack incidentally occurred a day after the First Bench of the HC said that the proposal to extend the CISF cover to the premises is under consideration. Advocates rushed the victim to the Government Rajiv Gandhi Hospital, where doctors said he was due for surgery, Indian media reports.
