india Updated: Nov 13, 2008 16:15 IST

Tamil Nadu government today announced setting up of a commission to probe the violence at the Ambedkar Law College in Chennai, in which three students were seriously injured.

Law Minister Duraimurugan, while replying to a call attention motion in the Assembly, said Justice Shamugham Commission will make a detailed probe into the matter and submit a report to the state government.

He said the Law College Principal Sridev has been placed under suspension while the ongoing semester exams have been postponed as there was no "cordial atmosphere" to conduct them right now.

All law colleges in the state have been closed to avoid any untoward incident, he said.

The seven arrested students have been booked under various IPC sections including 307 (attempt to murder).
