Car caught fire outside residence of party leader T T V Dhinakaran
A senior police official said Parimalam came to the RK Nagar MLA's house apparently to protest the action against him.
A car in which a recently sacked AMMK functionary traveled caught fire outside the residence of party leader T T V Dhinakaran here today with his supporters claiming it to be a botched "petrol bomb attack."
While police said it was suspected that expelled functionary 'Bullet' Parimalam himself set the car on fire on reaching Dhinakaran's house, the supporters of the AMMK leader alleged he intended to hurl a petrol bomb which went off accidentally.
After reaching the place, he was suspected to have suddenly set his own car on fire using petrol, before fleeing the spot, the official said. His driver had been detained and was being interrogated, the official said.
