Chennai : The Madras High Court has ordered CBI inquiry into police firing during the protests to close down Sterlite copper smelting plant in Thoothukudi, that killed 13 people.

Passing orders fo a CBI probe, Justice CT.Selvam and Basheer Ahamed also quashed the detention orders passed against six individuals under the National Security Act.

The six persons were detained under the National Security Act for alleged involvement in violence during the anti-Sterlite protests in Tuticorin.

The state government had issued closure orders against the copper smelter plant after police firing killed 13 people on May 22.

The company then moved the National Green Tribunal to challenge the govt order closing the plant permanently.
