A group of Sri Lankan nationals proceeding to Velankanni on Sunday were stopped midway by the Tiruvarur district police who advised them to return to avoid any problem.

Seventy-five Sri Lankans arrived Tamil Nadu by a Mihin Lanka flight on Sunday evening and immediately left for Velankanni by two omnibuses.

Sources said the buses were stopped on the outskirts of Needamangalam in Tiruvarur district and the tourists were advised to return to prevent any untoward incident. Later in the night, they left for Chennai to head back home.

There was a stiff opposition to the visit of a Sri Lankan MP, Karu Jayasuriya, to Tamil Nadu a few days ago with members of various political parties staging a demonstration at Tirukadaiyur in Nagapattinam district. Protests were held in front of the hotels at Tirukadaiyur and Tiruchi where the MP and his wife stayed.

A few months ago, a convoy of buses carrying Sri Lankan pilgrims were stoned on the city’s outskirts while they were returning from Velankanni.

They were all flown back to the island nation in a special flight from the Tiruchi airport. (The Hindu)

    there are ca. 40 million tamils in tamil nadu alone, they do not care about human rights, because they cannot get it in a country like india, which is a hotspot in corruption and opportunism. look at the latest rape cases! but a well organized mob only attacks peaceful pilgrims and tourists. this mob is serving only the political agenda of their masters and are probably all well provisioned by them. you indians have no idea of democracy and respect of any human being, because you proof the opposite to all the rest of the world, shame on you.

    The Govt. should put an advisory out for SL's NOT to visit TN!

    Southpaw Tuesday, 26 February 2013 09:34 AM

    Very soon Many Countries will be turning back Sri Lankans if they continue to follow the lead of Racists and attack Minorities in the Island.

    lal Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:09 AM

    Is this not a human rights violation, not providing safe passage to pilgrims? Karu and Jaya has something to say? Why bother flying Lankan aircraft to this dirty city of Chennai?

    bushel Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:10 AM

    Prevention is better than cure.
    If lankans continue to travel to T.nadu there can be situations where prevention action is not present . BE AWARE...!

    Who created this racism! Not common masses but self seeking politicians since independence.

    kumar Tuesday, 26 February 2013 06:45 AM

    I can't understand the mentality of these people. protest against SL military personnel can understand. But protesting normal public and cultural/sports teams can't be justified.

    Shan Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:28 AM

    Why our people so heedless to attrocities of Tamil Nadu goons? Is it so essential to visit only this place Velankanni? There are so many Shrines in Sri Lanka, why do our people want to go to India?

    Observer Tuesday, 26 February 2013 06:51 AM

    Yeah treat all the Indians, Tamils, Muslims the same way so this will be peaceful country.

    pramiya Tuesday, 26 February 2013 12:00 AM

    MR us adamant on the ethic issue between tamilnadu and Sri Lanka but still manages to visit Buddhagaya despite many opposition due to VIP status. but poor ordinary citizens returned to the country with financial losses to them. are we continuing to let the royal family flourish in comfort and us suffer with poor living standards via DM Android App

    Sena Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:08 AM

    Don't we have any other country or any other place to visit?
    By knowing the current situation, why we want to waste money and time for this?
