Press Trust of India  |  Kochi 

Justice P R Ramachandran Nair said there is no illegality in the Government Order imposing ban on the Freedom Parade.

The order was passed on a batch of petitions by PFI seeking a permission to conduct the parade on Independence Day.

Earlier, the Government had submitted that the PFI, is the 'resurrection' of banned SIMI in another form and along with National Democratic Front (NDF) had 'active involvement' in 27 murder cases, mostly of cadres of CPI(M) and RSS.

Meanwhile, a Division Bench granted police protection to a petitioner alleging that a private property was forcibly occupied for the conduct of mass drill at Idinjakkaplamoottil in Thiruvananthapuram.
