A senior official said that though there is no security threat to Rajinikanth, 40 police personnel headed by a sub-inspector have been posted there on two shifts for safety reasons. While the DVK members staged a protest near Semmozhi Poonga on Tuesday, about 50 of them gathered on Wednesday too and were prevented from going towards Rajinikanth’s residence. They raised slogans against Rajinikanth, carrying placards accusing the actor of propagating religious fundamentalism, and tried to burn an effigy of the actor which was prevented by police. 

As the protestors refused to disperse, they were detained and released a few hours later.  DVK said that they would protest in front of Rajinkanth’s residence until the actor withdraws his comments.
