As per reports, it has been alleged that an expelled party worker, Bullet Parimalam, was behind the attack.
Mr Dhinakaran broke away from the ruling AIADMK to form his own party and contest Chennai's RK Nagar by-election in December last year. He won comfortably from the seat previously held by J Jayalalitha.
