CHENNAI: Normalcy was restored a day after a violent clash between members of Thevar Peravai and Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) over a petty issue in Tambaram.

The Tambaram police registered two separate cases based on complaints from both parties. However, no arrest was made until Thursday evening. Heavy police security was posted on Shanmugam Street, where the birth anniversary of Muthuramalinga Thevar was observed on Thursday.

Things turned violent around 10.15 pm on Wednesday when a group of persons reportedly belonging to Thevar Peravai, vandalised a shop run by a TMMK functionary on MRM Street and hacked three of his employees. In the retaliatory attack by the supporters of the TMMK functionary, four members of the opposite gang were injured, police said. A police inspector, Chellappa, who was present in the market area, was allegedly injured in the clash.

Police sources said all the eight injured persons were undergoing treatment in hospitals and are out of danger.
