Karunanidhi orders CBI probe into Dinakaran office attack

A day after the office of the Tamil daily, Dinakaran, in Madurai, was attacked, the Tamil Nadu Government on Thursday ordered a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the incident that left three persons dead.

Madurai, May 10 : A day after the office of the Tamil daily, Dinakaran, in Madurai, was attacked, the Tamil Nadu Government on Thursday ordered a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the incident that left three persons dead.

Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, who will celebrate 50 years of political life on Friday, made the announcement in the State Assembly.

He said, since his family members were concerned in the issue, an investigation by the State Police was not enough, and therefore, a Central probe has been ordered.

In an alleged attack by the supporters of Karunanidhi's elder son M K Azhagiri, two computer engineers and a security personnel of Maran-family owned Dinakaran were killed in the attack on the daily's office on Wednesday.

A funeral procession of the three employees of the Dinkaran will be carried out here today.

Karunanidhi has urged the people to remain calm.

So far two persons - 'Tiger Pandi' and Badsha - have been arrested in connection with the attack.

An FIR has also been lodged against the persons identified for their involvement in the attack, police said.

The police have formed five special teams to carry out investigations.

Besides, around 20 persons had been detained for with the violence.

Meanwhile, various journalists' organisations, including Madras Union Journalists, have called a protest meeting at Triplicane, later today, as a mark of protest against Wednesday's attack.

On Wednesday, the building housing Dinakaran, Sun TV and other media offices were set ablaze after being attacked by the supporters of Azhagiri, angered over an opinion poll.

Dinakaran had carried out a state-wide survey on who would be the political heir of Karunanidhi and published the results.

The named contenders were three of the Karunanidhi's children- Local Administration Minister and party Deputy General Secretary M K Stalin, the Madurai-based Azhagiri and poet Kanimozhi.

The survey voted Stalin as the frontrunner with 70 per cent votes in his favour.

Two employees, M Vinod Kumar and G Gopinath trapped in a room, fell unconscious due to suffocation. They were declared dead on admission to a private hospital.

The charred body of a private security guard, K Muthuramalingam was found amid the debris in the evening.The staff of Dinakaran, Sun TV and Tamil Murasu blocked traffic on the national highway for hours demanding the arrest of Azhagiri, holding him responsible for the incident.
