Vaiko arrested after attempting to lay siege to Sri Lankan DHC


MDMK Chief Vaiko has been arrested by Chennai Police after he attempted to lay siege on the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission yesterday (4).

The MDMK chief is demanding that New Delhi should vote against Sri Lanka during the US-sponsored motion at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) later this month, stated NDTV.

Indian External Minister Salman Khurshid had said in the Indian parliament that while the government shared the concern of the parties from Tamil Nadu, India would not intervene directly in Sri Lanka's sovereign affairs. The minister had said that "accountability must come from within Sri Lanka".
