GEORGE TOWN : A man accused of obstructing police from carrying out their duties during the Taipusam festival earlier this year yesterday went berserk when he case was called up for hearing at the magistrate's court here.
S. Morale started throwing punches at policemen when he was taken into the dock and moments after the interpreter started reading out the charge against him.
The policemen immediately tried to restraint him and handcuff him but Morale kept resisting. A furious policeman then threw a chair at the accused.
Morale's parents whow ere also present in the courtroom then tried to calm him down but also failed to do so.
Morale's councel M Viswanathan earlier informed magistrate Noor Aini Yusof that his client had been admitted at Hospital Bahagia in 2010 after suffering from a relapse of schizophrenia.
The situation in the court only resumed to normal after Morale was finally carried out of the courtroom by six policemen.
