Chennai: A country-made petrol bomb was hurled targetting the car of TTV Dhinakaran on Sunday. The sidelined AIADMK leader was not inside the car when the incident took place.

The incident, which happened outside his place, left Dhinakaran's driver and personal photographer injured.

Photos released by news agency ANI show the damaged rear windshield of Dhinakaran's SUV car. Pieces of broken glass could also be seen on the road.

Police have reached the spot and initiated an investigation.

Last year, Dhinakaran parted ways with the ruling AIADMK to form his own party and contest RK Nagar by-election. RK Nagar Assembly constituency fell vacant after the death of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

Sidelined Dhinakaran won the much-sought-after constituency, taking a virtually unassailable lead of over 40,000 votes against his AIADMK rival E Madhusudhanan.
