Covai Post Network

COIMBATORE: In a counter to a Hindu outfit, which performed marriages of a dog and goat last year to protest against the celebrations of Valentines Day, Thanthai Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam (TPDK) on Thursday decided to file divorce petitions in the family court here.

According to TPDK General Secretary K. Ramakrishnan, his organisation has taken the dog, Anjali and goat Alamelu in their custody, which were left on the roads by a Hindu outfit after tying Thaali (mangalasutra) last year.

Thought TPDK has filed a petition with the Commissioner of Police last year seeking to restore these animals to their respective husbands, there was no response from the police department so far, he said.

In view of this, TPDK prepared divorce petition and arrived at the family court and handed over them to the lawyers, Ramakrishnan said.
