The Tamil Nadu leaders have condemned the violent act.
Subversive attacks and character assassinations on CPI leaders, rampant in Tamil Nadu in recent times, are viewed as reactions to the prominent role, played by Tamil Nadu CPI in the current uprising in Tamil Nadu.
CPI is seen by many as the vanguard of the emergence of new leadership in Tamil Nadu.
