In the video which is from 25th May, 2018, it can be seen that the DMK leader is resorting to violence against a woman working at a beauty salon in Tamil Nadu’s Perambalur. Selvakumar can be seen speaking to a woman inside a parlour and suddenly starts brutally thrashing and kicking her, while the other three can be seen pleading to save the woman. Selvakumar then went on to put his hand around the victim’s neck and pushed her to the floor and continued to kick her.
DMK has now suspended the former corporator for physically assaulting a woman and released a press note and said, “The party suspends him from basic membership and all party posts due to actions that go beyond the code of conduct of the party and for defaming the party.”
