With the atmosphere remaining surcharged in Tamil Nadu over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, members of some pro-Tamil outfits today hurled stones Madurai at the office of Mihin Lanka, a low cost airline based in Colombo, police said.

Activists belonging to pro-Tamil organisations including Aathi Thamizhar Peravai and Naam Tamizhar Iyakkam earlier blocked the road demanding that the Union Government vote against Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) meeting in Geneva, officials said.

They also shouted slogans against the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa for alleged war crimes against ethnic Tamils.

The glass windows of the office, located in a city hotel, were damaged, and further inquiry was on, police said, adding, 30 people have been arrested.

Members of the Aathi Thamizhar Peravai also attempted to block trains at the railway junction here, but were detained by police.

Yesterday, about 40 students of a government law college here allegedly damaged a party flag post and notice board of Janata Party office here, protesting its chief Subramanian Swamy's recent meeting with the Lankan President. (Out Look India)

    Just shows how stupid these TN people are. What about the Tamils in the hill country. Nobody talks about their problems.

    Nodrog Wednesday, 06 March 2013 10:35 AM

    Is that so? Then why did India come on their knees to us when we issued the travel warning to TN. Didn't the TN business community lambast the centre for not taking precautionary measures?

    What a pity , our govt is facing more trouble after civil war was over.

    We should avoid buying Indian products, by that way can teach them a lesson.

    Don't just bluff. They never beg us to lift the travel restriction, its our business community and travel agencies affected more than them.

    If Mihin closes, this might be a blessing in disguise for the people of Sri Lanka

    mail_guy Wednesday, 06 March 2013 10:12 AM
