Anti-Sterlite protest turns violent

A scuffle broke out between the police and protestors over Sterlite Industries in Tamil Nadu's Thoothukudi on Tuesday. Protesters are demanding a ban on Sterlite Industries as they are causing severe pollution in the environment. Due to this, people are suffering from breathing problems. Protestors threw stones at the police. Police had to resort to baton-charge to disperse the agitated crowd.
