He is identified as Vinod from Madurai after his mobile number was traced. It is to be noted that on 29 August, police received a phone call from an unidentified person stating that a bomb would go off at the actor’s Thiruvanmiyur residence. Soon after, bomb squads, sniffer dogs and a posse of police rushed to the spot and confirmed that the threat was hoax. Following this, high security was provided for Ajith’s family.
The arrested youth however alleged that he had lost his sim card a month ago and he did not make any such call. He has now been brought to Chennai for further interrogation.
