The police arrested two persons who stoned the Sri Lankan Airlines booking office in Tiruchi on Saturday evening.

P. Udayakumar, 35, district coordinator of the Makkal Janayaga Kudiarasu Katchi, and V. Sathiakumaran, 28, district organiser of the Tamil Nadu Maanavar Koottamaippu, entered the office posing as customers.

All of a sudden, they threw stones on the glass panes and raised slogans against the Sri Lankan government for an article critical of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa posted on the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry’s website.

Police personnel, who were posted in a good number in the area in view of the agitation by the Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam, nabbed them. Both were remanded in custody.

Earlier in the day, nine volunteers of the Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam, led by district president Saravanan, staged a black flag demonstration in front the booking office.

They were taken into preventive custody and released in the evening.(The Hindu)
