Actor Rajinikanth had told that 'anti-social elements may have been involved in the Tuticorin violence, but it cannot be presently verified.
The Tamilnadu state government had appointed a retired judge Aruna Jagadeeshan to oversee the investigations into the incident in Tuticorin. Actor Rajinikanth's remarks about the violence resulted in him being summoned in Feb. 2020. But the actor managed to evade the summons, and the special counsel has now indicated that Rajinikanth may be summoned again in Jan. 2021.
The one-person special counsel has not yet established the involvement of anti-social elements. The investigation into the Tuticorin is still ongoing, and a detailed report can only be expected after the final findings are publicized.
