A scuffle today broke out between two groups outside the venue of the general council meet of 'Nadigar Sangam', in which the windscreen of an actor's car was allegedly smashed, with police detaining several persons involved in the ruckus.
Trouble erupted when a group of persons, claiming to be supporters of an actor suspended from the 'Sangam', tried to barge into the venue of the meet even as the windscreen of an SUV belonging to actor Karunas was smashed allegedly by unidentified persons, police said.
A fight broke out between those who tried to barge in and those who tried to prevent them, resulting in fisticuffs and chaotic scenes, they said.
Mild force was used to disperse the warring factions and several of them have been detained, police said.
The incident occurred even as the general council meet of Nadigar Sangam (South Indian Film Artistes Association) was about to start, they said.
The Sangam's executive committee had recently suspended actors Sarath Kumar and Radha Ravi.
