The body was brought to the village by road around 12.30 p.m. amid tight security and kept in his ancestral house for about two hours. As the crowd had ``warned'' the police not to enter the street where the house is located, only the ambulance carrying the body was allowed. After the public, particularly a large number of youths, paid homage, the body was buried around 3.30 p.m.
Almost all shops in Mullakkaadu, Muthaiahpuram, Arumuganeri, Pazhayakaayal, Aaththoor, Mukkaani, Kurumbur, Eral, Moolakkarai, Ammanpuram and neighbouring areas remained closed for the second day today. Business establishments in Bryant Nagar, Chidambara Nagar, Shanmugapuram and Third Mile in Tuticorin and in Perumalpuram near Palayamkottai downed the shutters. Black flags were hoisted in these places, where there is a high concentration of the Nadar community.
Bus services between Tirunelveli and Tiruchendur and between Tuticorin and Tiruchendur were significantly reduced. However, a gang set afire a TNSTC bus at Kaanam near Sonahanvilai last night after asking the passengers to get down. A lorry, parked on the main road of Bryant Nagar, suffered minor damage after a petrol bomb was lobbed last night. As a preventive measure, the police had detained around 100 youths, suspected to be supporters of Venkatesh Pannaiyar.
