He has been admitted to a Government Hospital in Madurai. Police said the Cable TV network in the district was allegedly managed by some rowdy elements, who were angry with the tahsildar for being strict and not allowing them to collect more than the amount stipulated by the government.
The District Collector also had received several complaints from the public that the TV operators were collecting more than Rs. 110 in many areas instead of Rs. 70 fixed by the government.
A case has been registered against the culprits, police said.
