The protest on Jallikattu has been going on since days with no proper solution. As many as 94 cops sustained injuries while 51 police vehicles were damaged in a single day’s violence. The police have also detained about 40 persons for interrogation. Although the situation is now under control, there has been various minor incidents in Chennai which questioned the credibility of the police.
A video has gone viral on the internet which shows a police personnel purportedly setting a vehicle on fire.
