The Salem Police on Monday said they have booked Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader MK Stalin, along with 2,000 other party workers, for allegedly violating ban orders and inaugurating a statue of late party veteran Veerapandi S Arumugam in the city.


The statue was inaugurated by DMK Treasurer Stalin on Sunday evening.

"We have registered cases against Stalin and 2,000 DMK workers under several sections of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) for offences like disobedience to order promulgated by public servant and obstruction in public way," said a police official.

Reacting to the incident, Stalin told reporters: "A number of false cases against the DMK have been registered, which are still pending in courts. This challenge also, we will meet legally."
