The remembrance started with observation of silence, followed by lighting the General Flame by Attorney at Law K. Arumugam, president of a human rights association and lighting the Heroes Flame by Attorney at Law S. Pasupathy, Trustee of the World Tamil Relief Fund.

More than 200 participants strew flowers at the memorial erected in the hall and paid tributes.
