A young man on Sunday allegedly attacked the car of Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan. A party leader said that the actor-politician was proceeding towards a hotel in Kancheepuram after campaigning for the April 6 Assembly polls.

Haasan was not injured in the incident though his vehicle's windscreen was damaged.

MNM leader and retired IPS officer A G Mourya tweeted that his party chief's car windscreen was damaged and the man who "attempted to attack" Haasan was handed over to the police.

Mourya said the party would not be scared by such elements.

His tweet was retweeted by the official Twitter handle of Makkal Needhi Maiam.

Local television channels aired visuals of a young man, said to be the assailant, being taken away by police personnel for allegedly attacking Haasan's car.

Police officials could not be reached immediately for comment.

The youth, reportedly drunk, was allegedly assaulted by some MNM cadres and members of the public. He was later taken to a hospital by the police.
