A tussle over hoising flags led to violence in Tambaram At least seven people were reportedly injured in a group clash that erupted at Tamabarm market area a little before midnight on Wednesday. Police sources said the clash was a result of previous enmity between two outfits. The Tambaram Thevar Peravai (TTP) members were placing placards and erecting flag posts all over the market area as part of 107th Jayanthi celebration of Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar on Thursday. When attempts were made to erect flag post on Muthuranga Mudali Street, it was stalled by men who claimed to be from the Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam. After heated arguments, the rival groups attacked each other with soda bottles and iron rods. Three persons each from both camps were admitted in private hospitals in Tambaram. One member of TTP was critically injured and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of a private hospital, sources said.
