VILLUPURAM: Following hostilities between two youth groups over putting up movie banners, two Dalit youth were left injured and two houses in the caste Hindu area were burnt down, at Kandamangalam near Villupuram.

According to sources, actor Ajith’s new movie, Vivegam, was to be released at a theatre on Kondur Road on Thursday. Some youth from a Dalit colony near Pakkam Junction had placed a banner at the junction on Tuesday night, lauding the movie.

Later, some Vanniyar youth from the village insisted that the banner be removed, so that they could place another banner, celebrating the release of the same movie. The youth from the colony refused, leading to an argument, which later resulted in a minor scuffle. Later in the night, a group of caste Hindu youth, from the village, got into the Dalit colony and attacked the boys who had fought them.
