Search on for man who assaulted constable
Incident occurred during recent protest
The police have launched a manhunt to nab a suspect who brutally assaulted a constable near the Triplicane police station when the Naam Thamizhar Katchi (NTK) and other outfits took out a rally against the Indian Premier League cricket match last week.
Last Tuesday, several outfits, including the NTK, staged a protest and police had to resort to lathicharge to disperse the protesters.
The next day, police booked a criminal case against NTK coordinator Seeman and his partymen for various offences, including attempt to murder.
CCTV footage showed one of the protesters assaulting a police constable and disappearing into the crowd.
The police have been looking for the assaulter. On Sunday, they released the picture of the suspect and appealed to the members of the public to pass on information about him.
A senior police officer said, “The case is under investigation. We have identified the persons who were around the suspect. Very soon, we will arrest him.”
