Chennai, Dec 16 (UNI) AICC Secretary in-charge of Tamil Nadu K B Krishnamurthy today said the party High Command was satisfied with the report submitted by a three-member panel, which went into the recent attack on State Youth Congress President ''Mayura'' S Jayakumar.

On his maiden visit to the city after being appointed as the Tamil Nadu in-charge, he told reporters that the party High Command would take action based on the report to ensure that no such incidents recur in future.

Referring to the notice issued to TNCC President M Krishnasamy's son and Cheyyar MLA Dr M K Vishnu Prasad for filing a police complaint against Union Minister G K Vasan after the attack on Mr Jayakumar on November 11, he said it was an internal affair of the party.

It may be recalled that Mr Jayakumar, a staunch loyalist of Mr Vasan, and two other party workers were injured in an attack by party Councillor ''Saidai'' Williams, a supporter of Dr Vishnu Prasad.

A day after the attack, the Cheyyar MLA had lodged a complaint with the police, charging Mr Vasan with instigating the attack with a view to eliminate him.

Acting on a complaint from Jayakumar, the police registered a case and had cited Dr Vishnu Prasad as the prime accused in the attack case, which was said to be a fallout of the former sacking six youth Congress district presidents including Williams.

Williams, who was arrested by the police, was subsequently expelled from the party by CWC member in-charge of Tamil Nadu V Arun Kumar for attacking Mr Jayakumar.

Two State youth Congress functionaries, Vice-President Rethinakumar alias Rajnikanth and General Secretary Sri Kandan were also removed from their posts for their involvement in the attack.

After recovering from the injury, Jayakumar camped at New Delhi and met the top leaders including Rahul Gandhi and explained the situation.

Though the three-member panel formed by the party leadership had cleared Dr Vishnu Prasad of his role in the attack on Jayakumar, the committee in its report said the MLA had accused Mr Vasan only to ''save his skin'', leading to issuance of notice to him by the AICC.

To a question on alleged support to LTTE by some parties, Mr Krishnamurthy said the Party High command had already passed a resolution in this regard in New Delhi.

''There is no change in it. We will oppose the LTTE and also those supporting it,'' he added.
