The news report, published Tuesday, also stated that a senior police officer chaired the meeting and the Election Commission of India is enquiring into the matter.
In a statement issued here Wednesday, Chief Minister M Karunanidhi said: "The report is published mainly to confuse and divert people and also instill a sense of fear in the minds of officials who are assigned the task of vote-counting."
