The complainants also say that he was insulted by caste names. Manikandan said that he had a feeling that the attackers were drunk. He has filed a complaint with the Chief Minister as the police were not ready to file a case despite the complaint. Manikandan said that he is hoping that the Chief Minister will intervene.
