New Delhi: FIR was filed against DMK Chief M Karunanidhi and his son MK Stalin on Sunday, a day after violent clashes between the workers of two political parties took place.

The clashes took place shortly after the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was convicted in the 18-year-old corruption case in which she was sentenced for four years.

Three FIRs were filed at the Royapettah Police Station against the two and several others in Chennai on Saturday night based on complaint by some AIADMK workers who alleged that a group of DMK workers attacked them with “deadly weapons” near Karunanidhi’s Gopalapuram residence, police said.

The FIRs were filed under IPC sections 147 (Punishment for Rioting), 148 (Rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 324 (Voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 336 (Act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 506/2 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), they said.

The clash took place when AIADMK workers protested against DMK and its leaders, alleging that it was their act of “foisting” the illegal Rs. 66.65-crore assets case that led to the conviction of Jayalalithaa by a Bangalore special court on Saturday.
