A case was registered against DMK President MK Stalin and party`s Vellore Lok Sabha poll candidate DM Kathir Anand on Friday for conducting a meeting without necessary permission, officials said.

Lok Sabha poll for the Vellore constituency, which was cancelled following the seizure of at least Rs 12 crore in cash from a DMK leader's associate in raids in April, is scheduled to be held on August 5 and the model code of conduct is in force in the constituency.

Ambur police in Vellore district registered the case. 

Stalin met leaders of the Muslim community at a marriage hall in Ambur without the permission of election officials on Thursday.

The marriage hall where the meeting took place has also been sealed for violation of model code of conduct.
