Police have started tracking down the IP addresses of the 26 users whose comments, out of the total 900 posts on the band's Facebook page, were found abusive, officials said.
In an apparent spillover of sibling rivalry in the DMK first family, unidentified persons threw stones at actress and party leader Khushboo and her house in separate incidents over her comments on the elevation of M K Stalin, party chief M Karunanidhi's son. Khushboo escaped unhurt when stones and footwear were hurled at her as she was coming out of a hotel at Tiruchirappalli where she was on a visit to attend the marriage of DMK Rajya Sabha MP Tiruchi N Siva's daughter, police said. The miscreants also shouted slogans, 'Khushboo is anti-DMK, anti-Stalin' before fleeing the spot. Karunanidhi and Stalin were also present at the wedding. In Chennai, stones were hurled at Khusbhoo's house but none was injured. Some bulbs were broken in the stone-pelting, police said. The provocation for the attacks seemed to be her interview to a Tamil weekly that Karunanidhi's mere statements would not ensure Stalin's elevation as it is the decision-making bodies in DMK which will take a call on such matters. "People have misunderstood and misinterpreted my version in the Tamil Magazine. I have not made any wrong statement about Stalin or the decorum of the party. I am loyal to the party and obey what the leaders say," she told reporters at Tiruchirappalli. (MORE)
