New Delhi: One of the followers of jailed DMK MP Kanimozhi had a tough time in a Delhi court on Tuesday which first ordered his detention and then let him off with a stern warning for clicking the photograph of his leader inside the courtroom.

"I tender unconditional apology to this court," a visibly shaken follower of the DMK leader told the court with folded hands when he was brought again before it.

Almost half-an-hour before, Suhail Hindustani was detained for taking photographs of 43-year-old Kanimozhi along with her minor son Adithya sitting in her lap during the court proceedings.

Hindustani was caught off guard when Special CBI Judge O P Saini asked policemen, present in the courtroom, to take him in custody.

Hindustani, who was kept in the courtroom of a magistrate during his detention, was later rebuked by the judge when he tried to justify his misdemeanour.

"Be silent. Get out from here," Saini said tersely.

The day's proceeding in the case started with the high-profile visit of DMK leader M K Stalin who came to meet his sister and stayed inside the courtroom for around one and half hours.

Besides Stalin, DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu and Durai Murugan, former PWD minister of Tamil Nadu, Kanimozhi's mother Rajathi Ammal, her husband Aravindan and some DMK leaders were also present in the court.
