AIADMK MLA and former minister K Pandurangan and 44 others were on Monday "secured" after they entered the government hospital premises at Vellore demanding that an erased portrait of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, be redrawn in the same place, police said.

Police said a portrait of Jayalalithaa had been painted on a wall in the hospital complex a few months ago, but it was found erased.

Angered over this, AIADMK workers led by Pandurangan converged at the place and demanded that it be redrawn. When pleas failed to make the workers leave, they were "secured", police said.

Already a police complaint has been lodged with the Fort St George police station here on May 31, charging Pandurangan with wrongful restraint and preventing a policeman from discharging his duty.
