The activists assembled in front of a Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation (TASMAC) outlet, located opposite the exit of the Ukkadam Bus Stand as part of a State-wide protest to demand total prohibition.

A woman constable was injured and treated for a minor bruise. Police said efforts were on to identify those who indulged in the stone-throwing.
