The Sholavaram police on Saturday arrested Hindu Makkal Katchi’s Hanuman Sena State secretary and two of his associates for falsely claiming that he was attacked with petrol bombs to get police security cover for him.

Kalikumar, State secretary of Hanuman Sena, lodged an oral complaint with the police. He said he was travelling to the Tiruvallur Collectorate in his car, accompanied by his friend, Minjur Town Secretary Gnanasekar and his brother Ranjith. While on the outer-ring road, he claimed that two unidentified persons hurled petrol bombs at the car and fled.

Tiruvallur Superintendent of Police M.R. Sibi Chakravarthy and Ponneri DSP Raja conducted an investigation. On being grilled, the trio admitted to having faked the attack.
