Eggs and stones were hurled at Kamal Hasaan during a public meeting in Aravakuruchi on Thursday. After the incident, two men were arrested by the police. However, Kamal escaped from the spot unhurt.
The MNM chief Kamal Hasaan began the final leg of the campaign in Aravakuruchi assembly constituency on Thursday. He was attending a public meeting at Velayuthampalayam in Karur. When he finished his speech, two men threw eggs and pelted stones while he was getting down from the stage.
Kamal was lucky that it felt short and he escaped unhurt from the spot. The MNM members immediately caught hold of the man and started beating them. The police present at the spot came to their rescue and took them under their custody.
Although the sources have suspected that the men might belong to the Hindu Munnani members who before were denied permission from protesting against Kamal Haasan in Velayuthampalayam
Also, a protest was later staged by lyricist Snehan along with the members of MNM demanding action against those who threw eggs at Kamal.
The protest was in action until Karur SP Vikraman promised to take action against the men. One of the arrested men was identified as Ramachandran of Thalavapalayam.
Citing law and order issues, the police denied MNM permission to campaign at six places in Sulur on Friday.
