Tuticorin Shooting: will Rajini appear before Aruna jagadeesan panel 25 Feb?

The Justice Aruna Jagadeesan commission that is probing the May 2018 violence that erupted in Tuticorin during the anti-Sterlite protests which resulted in 13 deaths after police opened fire, has summoned actor Rajinikanth for his remarks on the protests. The superstar has been asked to depose before the commission on February 25. 

Speaking to the media in Tuticorin on May 30, after visiting the protestors who were injured in the violence, Rajinikanth had asserted that, anti-social elements had managed to infiltrate into the protests and unleashed violence, which led to police firing. Despite drawing flak for his comments from the protestors and political parties, the actor stood his ground.
