We had reported earlier today actor turned politician Kamal Haasan had cancelled his plans to attend H.D. Kumaraswamy’s swearing in ceremony as the next Chief Minister of Karnataka owing to the violence against the sterlite protests at Tuticorin yesterday.
Following that, there have been reports doing the rounds stating the Makkal Needhi Maiam leader had been arrested under Section 144 for violating the curfew imposed in Tuticorin.
Meanwhile, actor and Nadigar Sangam General Secretary Vishal took to his Twitter page to express his shock and dismay over the recent reports stating "such an action, if true, was nothing but an act of sheer atrocity."
