Pro-LTTE group arrested in India

 

Pro-LTTE supporters; two advocates and eight other persons were arrested on sedition charges in India.

Indian Police said pro-LTTE activist Prabha Kalvimani, advocates Karthikeyan and Thirumurugan, and state organiser of a pro-LTTE outfit, Balaguru and Nagai Mugan from Chennai, made pro-LTTE statements at a conference held on Saturday night.

The speakers also made anti-India remarks when a police team intervened and took all the 10 speakers into custody. They chased away about 250 persons from the conference venue, reported the Times of India.

The speakers at the conference organised by pro-LTTE outfits demanded immediate release of Nalini, one of the convicted persons in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. They also demanded monetary compensation for her.

Indian Police said the speakers at the conference warned the government that it would have to pay for every pro-LTTE person who sacrificed his or her life for the cause of Sri Lankan Tamils.
