Tamil Nadu: Slipper threw at BJP minister Radhkrishnan
Tamil Nadu's unidentified person hurled a slipper at BJP Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan while he was addressing mediapersons at Salem in the state. The slipper missed the minister and fell in front of him. Police have picked up a few youth in connection with the incident, but have not revealed their identities. He arrived at the house of the deceased JNU Dalit scholar Muthukrishnan to pay last tributes. Muthukrishnan's death in Jawaharlal Nehru University is now the centre of a storm of controversy with Dalit groups crying foul over what is alleged to be a suicide. Hailing from a Dalit family in Saminathapuram near Arisipalayam in Salem, Muthukrishnan, aged 30, was a PhD student at Jawaharlal Nehru University. After the autopsy at AIIMS in Delhi, the body was airlifted to Chennai and reached his home. Various political leaders were visiting the house to pay respects when a section of youth raised slogans against Pon Radhakrishnan.
