The Indian police today arrested hundreds of cadre of Tamilaga Valvurimai Katchi (TVK) when they attempted to picket the trains in Salem city, Tamil Nadu demanding international probe into the alleged massacre of innocent Tamils during the military offensive by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009, The Hindu reported.

They also demanded the Centre to implement the resolutions adopted by the Tamil Nadu Assembly on this issue.

The State Assembly recently asked the Centre to move a resolution in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for an international probe into the alleged war crimes and genocide in the final phase of the civil war in Sri Lanka.

Led by U. Kannan, headquarters secretary of the TVK, staged a demonstration in front of the Salem Railway Junction, raising slogans highlighting the demands.

Later, they attempted to enter the Railway Junction, when the police prevented and took about 350 of them into preventive custody.

The TVK cadre attempted similar rail roko agitation in Omalur and Magudanchavadi Railway stations too.

The police arrested 330 at Omalur and another 332 at Magudanchavadi, police source said.
