AIADMK has condemned the withdrawal of police protection provided to former law minister C Ve Shanmugam.
In a statement on Sunday, AIADMK joint coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami said that there were threats to Shanmugam from his rivals and if he is attacked, the DMK government should take responsibility
EPS said that Shanmugam’s political rivals barged into his house in 2006 to attack him. Though Shanmugam escaped, an AIADMK cadre named Muruganantham was killed. Since then, Shanmugam was provided round-the-clock security of armed policemen. TNN
