Chennai: The Tamil Nadu Government today assured "due action" against culprits in a case relating to the attack on a Congress functionary here allegedly by some PMK workers.

"Three persons have been arrested in connection with the attack on Congress leader and former MLA U Balaraman yesterday. The search is on for some more persons. I assure that the government will take due action," Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin informed the state assembly.

Responding to a call attention motion by various parties, including AIADMK, Congress and CPI (M), Stalin said Balaraman was presently undergoing treatment at a private hospital.

Three PMK workers, including a party functionary from North Chennai, were arrested in connection with the attack.

Balaraman was attacked on suspicion that he had played a key role in Ramadoss' brother Srinivasa Gounder and his son joining the Congress recently.

When Congress member C Gnanasekaran made some remarks about PMK over the incident, the latter took exception to it.
