Over 100 persons arrested, 9 detained under NSA for burning buses
Nadu police were issued shoot-at-sight orders on Sunday morning after
Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchigal activists, in a violent protest
against Sri Lanka, went on the rampage causing damage to buses, ‘The
Hindu’ reported yesterday.
"More than 100 activists of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchigal (VCK)
were held in different parts of the State for damaging buses. More
than 35 buses were damaged.
The police arrested the
activists who indulged in violence while garnering support for Tamils
living in Sri Lanka.
Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) leader Dr S Ramadoss, who visited VCK
leader Thol Thirumavalavan, now in his fourth day of a fast-unto-death
over the humanitarian crisis imposed on Tamil civilians by Sri Lanka’s
punitive bombardments, exhorted Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Kalaignar M.
Karunanidhi to act urgently to invoke Indian intervention to stop the
war. Emphatically refuting Mr. Karunanidhi`s statement that the VCK
leader had unilaterally decided to stage a protest fast without
consulting the rest of the Tamil Nadu polity, Dr. Ramadoss said Thol
Thirumavalavan, whose health is detoriarating, had consulted other
leaders several times in the recent weeks.
