FM's supporters held for trying to show black flags to Swamy

Chennai: Supporters of Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, including a former MLA, were on Tuesday arrested for trying to show black flags to Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy at the airport here.

They alleged Swamy was trying to malign Chidambaram on the spectrum allocation issue. Former MLA Selvam and others were arrested, police said.

The Supreme Court had recently rejected Swamy's petition seeking Chidambaram's trial in the multi-million 2G spectrum allocation scam.
