As a mark of protest against the U.S. supporting Sri Lanka in war crime probe, a group of members from Ilaiya Thalaimurai Koottamaippu, an outfit comprising youngsters, threw rotten chicken waste into a KFC outlet in Ashok Nagar in central India on Saturday afternoon.

The group also attempted to stage a protest outside the U.S. Consulate in Chennai. According to police, the group had earlier submitted a petition to the Consulate last month and gave 100 hours time for the U.S. government to change its stand on the investigation into the ‘genocide.’

“The time given by them expired by Saturday noon. Due to this, a few members of the outfit entered the KFC outlet in Ashok Nagar at 12.45 p.m. and littered it with rotten chicken. They also raised slogans against the U.S.,” a police source said.

After this, the same group went to the U.S. Consulate. A member attempted to douse himself with petrol on Cathedral Road and tried to barge into the Consulate. The police nabbed him and another member who also attempted to get inside.

Five members headed by Iniyan were detained.(The Hindu)

    An army fighting an insurgent cannot be considered as equal to a terrorist organization. Indeed if there has been acts of crime against humanity that should be dealt as appropriate.

    They should all douse themselves with petrol and do the unthinkable. Seriously, India would be a better place!

    There is nothing wrong for demanding justice for the victims of crime. The sl govt is charging ltte members for some of the attacks they did but nothing for the victims on tamil side.

    Sapu Sunday, 06 September 2015 01:41 PM

    Joke of the day!

    Sene Sunday, 06 September 2015 01:42 PM

    These protests happened in MR era as well

    Boonda Sunday, 06 September 2015 02:23 PM

    Well, internal or international, it got to be at international standard and that is the problem we have as we can not conduct a poor trail.

    Navin Sunday, 06 September 2015 02:34 PM

    Paid to protest by LTTE blood money?
