Assault on staff


An unidentified gang attacked a document writer’s office and assaulted a staff here on Wednesday.

The grievously injured Jagadeesan (27) of Sivaji Nagr here was admitted to Theni Government Medical College at Andipatti.

Srinivasan, another staff in the office, complained that the gang robbed Rs.10 lakh from the office. A case has been registered.

After a preliminary investigation, the police said that supporters of Naam Thamizhar Katchi attacked the office and assaulted the staff.

An audio containing heated arguments between NTK leader Seeman and the injured over a caste issue that went viral on the WhatsApp was the main reason for the attack, sources added.
