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.
