No claimants for bikes hauled by cops on hartal day

Edappal: Thirty-five bikes hauled from Edappal town on hartal day a month ago are still lying at the police station with no claimants coming forward fearing possible legal action.

The bikes were taken into custody after harthal supporters and opponents clashed in the town. Thirty people have been arrested for incidents of violence during the harthal. Many are absconding.

Even political pressure to release the vehicles is not yielding results. Only after arresting all suspects will the police hand over bikes.

The police are planning to get the registration details of the bikes and nab their owners. However, these bikes may not necessarily belong to the people who created ruckus as most probably they could be of their friends.

Some bike owners who were not involved in the violence were only witnesses to the violent incidents. Many bikes were damaged and allegedly the police themselves shattered the glasses of some.
