Chennai: Nearly 100 BJP workers, including
state party president Pon Radhakrishnan, were held on Thursday for
trying to stage a picketing in front of the Sri Lankan Deputy
High Commission here, opposing the recent arrest of Indian
fishermen, police said.
As many as 106 fishermen belonging to three fishing
hamlets have been allegedly abducted by Sri Lankan fishermen
and reportedly handed over to the Lankan authorities two days
back, sparking off protests across the state.
DMK leaders had courted arrest yesterday on the same
issue.
