CHENNAI: Police security was beefed up at actor Rajinikanth’s Poes Garden residence after a few fringe outfits planned to besiege his house condemning his statement on the Tuticorin anti-Sterlite protests.

Rajinikanth, who visited the injured protesters at Thoothukudi Medical College Hospital on Wednesday, told reporters in the city that anti social elements were responsible for the violence on May 22 which led to the deaths of 13 people in police firing.

His statement drew criticism from various political leaders and led to fringe outfits stating that they would lay siege to his house till he withdrew his statements.

Following this, a large number of police personnel were posted near his residence. Even the actor’s fans were not allowed anywhere near the house since morning. “We have posted nearly 70 policemen near the actor’s house to avoid any untoward incidents,” said a police officer.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is set to fly to Darjeeling this week for the shoot of his new film. The shoot is to last a month.
