Students 'gherao' Indian Army headquarters at Chennai

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 28 January 2009, 17:44 GMT]
Members of the Confederation of All Students were arrested by the Tamil Nadu State Police when they attempted to surround the South Zone Regiment Headquarters ATNKNK of the Indian Army at Chennai Wednesday morning to mark their protest against "Indian terrorism that supplies weaponry for the genocide of Tamils." Wearing black shirts to mark their anger and mourn their dying Tamil brethren, the students raised slogans condemning the Indian Government and Army for extending military help to Sri Lanka which had resulted in the ruthless killing of innocent civilians.

The students first staged a road blockade, and subsequently attempted to gherao the Indian Army's South Zone Regiment Headquarters, when they were arrested by the state police.

"The Indian Government is audacious and arrogant, and completely heedless to the Tamil suffering. That is why, the Indian army lends strategic help towards the killing of Tamil civilians in Vanni. India has lost all respect for Tamil people living within its territory and that's why they are aiding the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka," a protesting student leader told media persons before being arrested.

News of the Indian Government shipping '30 battle tanks and 10 MiG27s' to Sri Lanka has led to an upsurge in student protests. Students of the Presidency college also staged a demonstration Wednesday to demand an urgent ceasefire.
