Condemning the midnight arrest of AIADMK MLA PK Sekarbabu, party supremo Jayalalithaa charged that Tamil Nadu's DMK government was "foisting false cases" against her party men.
In a statement, Jayalalithaa said the arrest of the MLA at a hospital on Sunday night, by "foisting false case" against him, had only exposed the "dictatorial attitude" of the DMK government.
He was charged with instigating and carrying petrol bombs for some persons to create disturbances during the civic polls in the suburbs of the city.
She said the police had registered the case against Sekarbabu as he "had exposed the misdeeds" of the DMK government.
Police had registered a 'false case' against former AIADMK minister B Valarmathy also on the same charge.
Based on the statements given by a few people held for poll violence, police arrested Sekarbabu on Sunday night from the hospital where he was receiving treatment. Valarmathy is at large and police said efforts were being taken to nab her.
