During the meeting was taking place all of a sudden Mr.Idayavarman MLA started firing at the rival gang from his weapons – a pistol and a SBBL Gun. First he fired from his pistol aimed at the de-facto complainant Kumar and immediately Kumar and his men escaped from the Scene of crime his Innova car. Then he fired his SBBL Gun towards the crowd indiscriminately. State PP vehemently objected the bail petition and argued that the License for the pistol and SBBL, used for the commission of the crime had already been expired on 31/12/2019 but the same was been used by Mr.Idhyavarman MLA. Also on 15/07/2020, an air rifle (0.22 Calibre) was possesed illegally by Mr.Idhyavarman MLA without any License.

State PP informed due to this incident one Mr.Srinivasan was injured and Two pellets have been recovered from his body after conducting surgery on the victim. State PP vehemently informed the court that being a powerful person, if the accused is enlarged on bail, it will be a threat to the victim Mr Srinivasan and already personal secutity – Armed police protection has been given to the de-facto complainant house due to threat from the accused.
