A group headed by councillor and Pillayan group paramilitary person P. Prasanth, Monday morning entered the Divisional Secretariat in Aaraiyampathi and attacked injuries to four workers of the secretariat.

The gang destroyed everything they found in the hall and caused damage to doors.

Prasanth's driver Amalan, brother Karan, Nathan, Kuddi and another TMVP person Kannan were the members of the gang that entered the secretariat, sources in Aaraiyampathi said.
