In one video a policeman is clearly heard telling his counterpart to ensure that atleast 2 people are killed in the firing. By the end of Tuesday 11 people had lost their lives to the police bullet.

Enraged over Tuesday's killings, protesters took to streets and showered stones and brickbats at police, prompting security personnel to open fire at Anna Nagar. This is when another man was shot dead.

While political parties have come out criticising the excessive police action, Many are left asking what was the crime of these 12 people who were shot dead? Only that they wanted a cleaner environment?
