The commission, headed by retired Madras High Court judge, S Rajasekaran, was in Coimbatore on Wednesday to inquire about the protest in January in the city.

Rajasekaran told reporters that the report will be submitted in another six to seven months, even as the term was ending by 31 October.

A total of 51 persons, including students had filed their affidavits before the commission, who were called for deposing before it, he said.

If necessary, they will be cross-examined during the three-day sitting, Rajasekaran said.

Police have already submitted the photographs and videos as evidence of the protest and violence in VOC Park Grounds, the venue of the jallikkattu protest.
