I was in Chennai then.
Early morning , I heard a loud wailing from my neighbor’s house, with shout’,
‘They are killing me’
I rushed out fearing the worst, only to find,
Karunanidhi weeping and shouting like a man possessed and insane on SUN TV.
This was the drama he was enacting on his arrest.
The vent was filmed in such a fashion as if it was scripted.
Karunanidhi and Co were shouting that the Police were arresting them without prior intimation.
If it is true, how come the Crew of SUN Network was in full force and filming the whole event from vantage points?
My posting of this instance is that a New unpublished Video of the incident.
The only polite word used by a Lady was , where is the warrant?’
You may be see rowdy behavior all around.
Finally exasperated, the Police gave back.

Footage shown on Sun TV saw him continuously resist arrest….
Reports indicate that at 1:30 am on 30 June, Karunanidhi was asleep in the upstairs bedroom of his home when the police broke open the door and asked Karunanidhi to get dressed.
