A group consisting of 40 LTTE well wishers who expressed their hostility towards Sri Lanka has been arrested in India.
They were exhibiting the picture of Velupillai Prabhakaran and shouting slogans against Sri Lanka. Media reports from India say that they were arrested as they posed a threat to India’s national defence. The group had organized a rally near the Manjakuppam Clock Tower in Tamil Nadu. The Indian media said that the group was taken into custody at the venue under the National Defence Act.
