Violent protest by AIADMK cadres against Jayalalithaa's conviction
Saturday September 27, 2014 5:17 PM, IANS

Following Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa's conviction in the disproportionate assets case Saturday by a special court, AIADMK cadres began stoning buses and forced shopkeepers to down shutters in the state.

Police beefed up security outside the residences of DMK president M. Karunanidhi, his son M.K. Stalin and senior leader K. Anbazhagan.

As soon as the court decision came, AIADMK cadres started stoning buses and forced shopkeepers to down their shutters in Kanchipuram, Trichy, Madurai and other places in the state.

Some private companies decided to close early in the evening and theatres cancelled their evening shows in Chennai.

Tension prevailed in some parts of Chennai and city bus services were halted for long routes.

AIADMK cadres were also holding protests on railway lines in some places.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy's house was stoned by the AIADMK activists.

Jayalalithaa was convicted in a Rs.66 crore disproportionate assets case. Following this, she is disqualified as a member of the Tamil Nadu assembly.

After an 18-year court battle, judge John Michael Cunha convicted 66-year-old Jayalalithaa, who is general secretary of the AIADMK.

In some places policemen pacified the AIADMK cadres who were trying to force shop owners to pull down their shutters.
