The victim also accused that Palaniandi, a DMK representative was the brain behind his brother and wife's wrongful arrest in a false case.
Karunanidhi said in his appeal that Palaniandi, the union secretary of Manikandam was the main culprit in the killing Purushothaman. Six people along with Karunanidhi were the main key witness in the case.
Accusing that he was denied to come in front as a eye witness and testify , Karunanidhi said that Palaniandi was even ready to bribe all the six eye witness a sum of Rs 25, 000. Karunanidhi's refusal to accept bribe from Palaniandi led to enmity between them, like it was written in the petition.
Karunanidhi's house was damaged several times by Palaniandi and his accomplices- Subramani, Rajendran, Palaniyyan and Ravi and few others. Despite this the police declined to file a compliant against Palaniandi.
Karunanidhi decided to remain firm on his decision and remain a witness in the murder case, following which the DMK representatives conspired against him to banish him from the village permanently.
A meeting was held on Jun 9, after which the village head Sivanthilingam announced that Karunanidhi will be banished from the village through loud drum beating.
"I had approached the police several times, but no action was initiated and so I decided to seek help of the collector," said the victim in his plea.
