Video footage from cameras installed at strategic locations and shops have enabled police to nab around 80 persons who allegedly indulged in violence during the funeral procession of a Hindu Munnani functionary on September 23. Police said they have identified a large number of people through the footage along the 18 km stretch from government hospital to Thudiyalur and so far nabbed 80 persons. They said one footage which had gone viral showed some youth looting a leading mobile shop in Thudiyalur area.

Police said they are on the lookout for two persons who torched a two-wheeler showroom-cum-garage in Sundarapuram early yesterday, which was put off by a police patrol. Footage in the garage revealed two masked persons pouring kerosene inside the showroom and setting it afire, they said. A state-wide bandh called by Hindu Munnani on Sept 23 following the murder of its district spokesperson Sasikumar
(36), the previous day had turned violent in some parts with a police jeep set ablaze and three personnel sustaining burns. Sasikumar was returning home in Subramaniampalayam in the outskirts of the city on a two-wheeler late at night on September 22 when unidentified assailants chased him on motorcycles and attacked him with sickles.

He was immediately taken to a private hospital, where he died.
