Mettur MLA SR Parthiban and DMDK district secretary N Radhakrishnan were arrested in connection with cases booked against them under IPC sections including 188, Salem Superintendent of Police Aswin Kotnis said.

The arrest comes a day after DMDK Taluk secretary Karuppuzhagi was taken into custody and cases registered against eight others including DMDK's Gengavalli MLA S Suba for allegedly making some remarks against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at a public meeting at Talavasal in the district on Monday night.

DMDK is led by actor-politician Vijayakant.
