Vaiko detained along MP-Maharashtra border

MDMK General Secretary Vaiko was today detained by the police when he tried to move further from Gadchicholi to Sanchi to protest Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa's visit


"Vaiko has been detained as he tried to move further from Gadchicholi near Pandhurna along with his supporters," Madhu Kumar, Inspector General (Jabalpur Range) told PTI.

Vaiko along with hundreds of his supporters has been protesting for the past three days against the Rajapaksa's visit to Sanchi alleging him of atrocities against Tamils in the island nation.

"We had already told them not to move further (towards Sanchi via Bhopal). But today they tried to move ahead after staging a protest. All of them have been detained," Kumar said.
