Chennai: Police on Sunday registered an FIR
against the editor of Tamil bi-weekly `Nakkeeran`, a day after
angry AIADMK workers attacked its office for publishing an
article on party chief Jayalalithaa`s eating habits.

The FIR was filed against the editor, Gopal, under
different IPC sections, including 505 (publishing a report
with an intent to incite), police said.

Armed AIADMK workers had allegedly attacked the office of
the Tamil bi-weekly, apparently incensed over a report in its
latest issue, which claimed Chief Minister Jayalalithaa ate
beef.

The party`s organising secretary C Ponnaiyan had warned of
legal action against the publication for carrying a
"mischievous and malicious report aimed at maligning
Jayalalithaa."

Meanwhile, Gopal said a complaint has been lodged with
police over the attack.
