Seventeen-year-old Snowlin was shot and killed... what all atrocities happened. For this, have they been punished? Not yet.” He promised to hold the accused police officers accountable if voted to power.It has been three years since his speech and since his party, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), came to power.
