Recreation clubs entitled to lawful activities: HC

The Madurai bench of the Madras high court on Friday said that members of recreation clubs are entitled to carry on lawful activities within their premises and there should not be any interference from the police.

Justice K K Sasidharan gave the ruling while allowing a writ petition filed by Mullai Recreation Club seeking to forbear the police from interfering with the rights of the its members who played 'rummy' without betting.

In its petition, the club, situated at Thankkankulam said it was aggrieved because of the unnecessary intrusion caused by the police inspector, Thirunagar, into their activities when its members have been playing rummy which is a game of skill.
