With this, the death toll at the AIADMK general secretary’s election meetings has touched four. On April 11, two people lost their lives at a rally addressed by Jayalalithaa.
While Jayalalithaa began her speech around 4 p.m. at the rally here, around 340 km from state capital Chennai, two people became unwell and were taken to a government hospital where they were declared dead.
According to police, they were identified as S. Pachiannan and M. Periyasamy.
A large section of the crowd were either brought to the rally ground in trucks and buses or had come on their own from nearby areas.
