Sources said Packiaraj of Vembakottai, an undertrial, was brought to the judicial magistrate II court for remand extension on Monday morning. He was allegedly involved in a robbery case.
He was produced before Judge Mariappan. Suddenly, Packiaraj hurled a bag, which he had been carrying, at the judge. It was later discovered that the foul smelling substance that fell on a court employee standing near the judge was human excreta.
Immediately, the police were summoned and an FIR was filed against Packiaraj.
Advocates, who were perturbed over the prisoner's actions, wanted to know how the authorities allowed him to carry the excreta with him.
