September 6, 2015   02:06 pm

As a mark of protest against the U.S. supporting Sri Lanka in war crime probe, a group of members from Ilaiya Thalaimurai Koottamaippu in India, has attempted to stage a protest outside the U.S. Consulate in Chennai.

According to Indian police, the group had earlier submitted a petition to the Consulate last month and gave 100 hours time for the U.S. government to change its stand on the investigation into the ‘genocide.’, the Hindu newspaper reported today.

At the U.S. Consulate, a member attempted to douse himself with petrol on Cathedral Road and tried to barge into the Consulate. The police nabbed him and another member who also attempted to get inside. Five members headed by Iniyan were detained.
