Kumbakonam: Fifty five DMDK cadres were arrested here on Tuesday when they tried to obstruct road traffic in protest against suspension of six party MLAs from the Tamil Nadu Assembly for one year.

The MLAs were suspended by Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal yesterday in connection with the assault on a dissident DMDK legislator inside the House last month.

They had allegedly assaulted C Michael Rayappan, one of the four MLAs from the Vijayakant led opposition party to call on Chief Minister Jayalalithaa last year.

Three women were among those arrested, police said.
