Windscreen of a government bus that had left for Srivaikundam in Thoothukudi district from Nagercoil was damaged in stone pelting in Ozhuginasery here early on Monday morning.
No one was injured in the stone pelting, as only a handful of passengers were travelling on the bus at the time of the incident.
The attackers escaped after pelting stones and further investigations are on, police sources said.
State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) stopped plying buses from Kerala to various destinations in Tamil Nadu immediately after Apollo Hospital in Chennai released a bulletin on the health condition of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Monday noon.
KSRTC buses were operated only up to Paralasalai.
However, Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation operated inter-State buses as usual, the sources said.
Parents thronged schools to pick up their children immediately after lunch hour.
There was heavy rush in various departmental stores in Nagercoil and other towns as people were seen hurriedly buying provisions.
Patrolling intensified
Superintendent of Police G. Dharmarajan told The Hindu that police picketing were posted at important junctions, and bus and railway stations to avoid untoward incidents. Patrolling was intensified across the district, especially near the office and residences of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leaders, he added.
However, shops and business establishments in Nagercoil and elsewhere in the district downed their shutters immediately after a few TV channels flashed unconfirmed news that the CM was dead around 6 p.m. All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam functionaries forced shopkeepers in Chettikulam and Kottar in Nagercoil to down their shutters in the evening.
