Tension prevailed in Kothapurinathan village in Thirubuvanai following a spat between two sections of people on Friday evening as a sequel to an earlier problem between the two groups a week back.

On Friday, a group was playing cricket when the other group opposed it and assembled near the ground and indulged in shouting, police said. This led to a wordy duel between the groups necessitating police intervention. As the police was attempting to bring the situation under control, they were chased by the groups and they threw stones at police inspector Jayaraman’s vehicle damaging the windscreen. The stone brushed his shoulder but he escaped unhurt, Superintendent of Police (Rural) Deivasigamany said.

Cases were registered against 30 persons for unlawful assembly, preventing the police from doing its duty and damaging public property. The situation has been brought under control, police said. However, extra police pickets were posted to maintain law and order, said Deivasigamany. “We are proceeding to arrest the accused,” the SP said.

The enmity developed a week ago during the birthday celebrations of a VCK activist’s child. Some caste Hindu youth opposed the VCK party’s flag put up in the place as part of the celebrations. This led to a clash between the two groups.
