Stalin was detained on Saturday after he sat on a protest at Marina beach here against the alleged attack on him and his party MLAs during the trust vote.

After alleging that he was manhandled in the Assembly by marshals during the vote of confidence, which the Palaniswami government won with a comfortable margin of 122-11, Stalin sat on a protest at the Marina along with his MLAs.

Several DMK workers had blocked vehicular traffic and indulged in stone-pelting in different places in the state to protest the alleged attack on Stalin.
