Chennai: Actor-politician Khushbu Sundar might now rest better as the Chennai police appear to have finally woken up to her anxious alert tweeted early Saturday drawing attention to a brand new container truck, sans registration number, parked unattended for the last ten days in a street at Santhome.
Posting two pictures of the 'anonymous' truck on her twitter handle, Khushbu said the container "has been parked at the corner of our street for the last 10 days…not even a single citizen around that has even bothered to check or complain….it raises suspicion as it does (not) even have a no. plate". She also urged the Chennai police "to kindly look into it immediately".
That tweet in the morning, unfortunately for her, led to quite a bit of trolling with some of the twitterati demanding to know why she did not bother to lodge a police complaint. Responding, Khushbu tweeted that those "who make a mockery or say I can complain, guys it is not in my street..alltleast I am raising the issue..either retweet and help if you can or just shut up and take a walk.." That second tweet got the star, who is also the national spokesperson for the Congress party, into even more trouble from the twitterati with a few pointing out that she had in her first tweet claimed that the container truck had been parked at the corner of her street and was now saying it's not in her street. So where was the truck, they asked. Some even dismissed the whole thing as an insignificant attention-drawing gimmick.
The third tweet from the star-politician gave further clue about the phantom truck, saying it was parked in between north and central Leith Castle Avenue at Santhome. Asked if the police did anything to check on Khushbu's anxious tweet in the morning, a high-ranking officer had this to say:
"We were not aware of her tweets. We will now check out and take suitable action (about the truck)"....
