An investigation has revealed that a controversial tweet by Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Shanakiyan Rasamanickam about an alleged abduction attempt in Kalmunai, was false and misleading, Police Headquarters issuing a statement said. 

On Thursday, MP Rasamanickam taking to his Twitter account reported an alleged abduction of a member of a Tamil political group. Unidentified men who claimed to be part of the state intelligence apparatus attempted to kidnap Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi youth wing assistant sect Nithanshan in the white van in the photo. A complaint has been lodged with the Kalmunai police re this @ReAdSarath” the MP tweeted. He added that the youth was actively taking part in the ongoing campaign to repeal the PTA. 

Police, however, revealed that an investigation into the incident found that a complaint was lodged by a youth named Arul Gnanamoorthy Nithanshan, following an altercation with another group who was travelling in a white van. 

Police said the two persons travelling in the white at the time van were businessmen, and in no way connected to the state intelligence services, adding that Nithanshan has not been abducted. Therefore the tweet by a person named Shanakiyan Rajaputhiran Rasama… and other messages circulating on social media are false and misleading. Further investigations into this incident will be carried out by the ASP of Kalmunai District,” Police said in a statement.
