The Maraimalai Nagar Police registered a case against DMK Tambaram MLA S.R. Raja for allegedly threatening a representative of a private firm in Singaperumalkoil, following a complaint and a video that went viral.

On Wednesday, a video of the DMK MLA along with a couple of others threatening and abusing a senior management official of a private company in the suburbs has gone viral.

The incident took place on the premises of Dae Jung Mo Parts Pvt. Ltd., a South Korea-based private company which manufactures rubber and plastic parts for automobiles. In the video, the MLA was seen abusing and threatening the company staff. The company representative was seen countering the MLA's words.

Police sources said the company has a dispute with another person who owns the land. The MLA allegedly acted at the behest of the party threatening the company to vacate the land, said police sources.

The MLA did not respond to calls. The police sources said a case had been registered and further action will be taken after an inquiry.
