Chennai, Aug 8: Two people were killed and 33 others injured in scuffle and stampede outside Rajaji Hall in Chennai where the mortal remains of Dr. M Karunanidhi have been kept.

MK Stalin's appeal to people to maintain peace went in vain. He blamed Tamil Nadu government for 'trying to create chaos'.

Stalin said, " Those who are in power are trying to create chaos, but you have all shown the strength of the cadres. I appeal to everyone to maintain peace."

"I request the cadre to remain calm, I did not want anything for myself. All I want is a fitting tribute to Kalaignar, he said.

People were seen climbing walls in an attempt to enter Rajaji Hall after Police blocked hall entrance due to huge crowds.
