The court was hearing the PIL filed by K Muthiah Pasumpon, an advocate and general secretary of All India Forward Bloc (Subhasist). He claimed that C Amuthavalli, belonging to another community, was appointed as a joint director of Kallar reclamation school at Madurai in May. Since then, she was acting in a caste biased manner as she had transferred and issued charge-memo to several school and hostel staff. Hence, he moved the court seeking to replace Amuthavalli.

Madurai: Madras high court on Monday ordered notice to the state government on a plea moved by a 67-year-old man seeking compensation under the victim compensation scheme for maintenance of his two minor grandchildren, as his son allegedly murdered his wife.
Justice G R Swaminathan ordered notice on the petition filed by M Karuthaperiyan, a resident of Alanganallur in the district. The petitioner stated that his son Vellaiperiyan was married to Abinaya and the couple have a 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son. Due to a domestic dispute, Vellaiperiyan murdered Abinaya in 2019. The Alanganallur police had arrested his son and remanded him in judicial custody on October 9, 2019.
On October 12, 2019, police informed him to go to the Government Rajaji Hospital, where he was told that his son, who was lodged at the Madurai Central Prison had committed suicide and a case was registered by the Karimedu police.
Karuthuperiyan stated that after the death of his son and daughter-in-law, he and his wife are taking care of both the grandchildren. Since they are an elderly couple, they are unaware about the future of both the children.
Since he hails from a economically poor family, he sought Rs 10 lakh under The Tamil Nadu Victim Compensation Scheme for Women Victims/Survivors of Sexual. Assault/Other Crimes, 2018 or under Compensation Scheme for Women Victims/Survivors of Sexual Assault/other Crimes, 2018, to be used for their education.
