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.
