A 30-year-old man Friday died after setting himself ablaze in Tamil Nadu over Sri Lankan Tamils' issue, said police as protests continued against the island nation's government across the state.

Vikram suffered severe burns after he set himself ablaze at an anti-Sri Lanka protest in a suburban area here Thursday night. He was taken to a government hospital, where he died later of his injuries.

He is the second person to immolate himself in the on-going protests. Earlier this month, Mani of Cuddalore district died after he too set himself ablaze, demanding action against Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa for war crimes committed against the Tamils there.

Protesting activists also demanded referendum among Lankan Tamils for creation of a separate Tamil 'Eelam' state.

Lawyers in temple town Madurai and Salem district also staged demonstrations against Sri Lanka.(Indian Express)

    Quite strange that nobody took such action when the L.T.T.E bumptoff their own Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

    There are millions of indian tamils who are suffering without food and shelter.So it is better to die than suffering.

    nicky karunarathnara Saturday, 23 March 2013 03:21 AM

    These guys will die anyway due to hunger, unbearabale powerty and caste system in India. If not they die of becoming suicide bombers or taking syanide capsules. These Tamil doesn't value human life at all anyway. If they don't take their life they take others due to their ill-formed mentality, raicsm and ego- centric nationalism..

    Mother India will be happy - too many idiots around and their population is also high

    John Fernandez Friday, 22 March 2013 11:31 AM

    This shows how immature Tamil Nadu people are. Those who can protest carrying a picture of the well fed chubby son of the most ruthless terrorist Prabha, what else can we expect???

    Susa Friday, 22 March 2013 11:30 AM

    No difference from LTTE bomb suiciders

    drake hughs Friday, 22 March 2013 11:24 AM

    this shows how stupid our neighbor is...

    mail_guy Friday, 22 March 2013 11:22 AM

    Burning theirself won't make any difference. They should keep on protesting till the end.

    Nirmalan Friday, 22 March 2013 11:18 AM

    This type of emotional, gullible people who can be whipped to a frenzy is the reason SL can never let the North govern itself.
    The cunning LTTE loving diaspora will be pleased how easy it is to manipulate opinions of gullible people.
