[TamilNet, Sunday, 18 April 2010, 18:13 GMT]
Tamil Nadu police arrested ten persons Sunday among hundreds of people who had gathered at Chennai airport to protest against the arrival of Namal Rajapakse, the son of Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapakse, passing via Chennai International Airport to watch the cricket match between the Chennai and Punjab teams, sources in Chennai said. Meanwhile, a group of fifty Sri Lankan police officers led by Superintendent of Police, L. R. Wijeyasinghe, who are to follow a three month course in security services for Very Important Persons (VIPs) in a training centre in Haryana state, arrived in Delhi Sunday, sources in Delhi said.

Members of various organizations including Periyaar Thiraavida Kazhakam in their hundreds had gathered at the airport to demonstrate their protest in the context of Liberation Tiger leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan’s mother being refused entry into Tamil Nadu for medical treatment and sent back to Malaysia, the sources added.

Meanwhile, Namal Rajapakse is reported to have reached Delhi from where he will proceed to watch the cricket match between Chennai and Punjab.

Sri Lankan cricket players are playing for the Punjab team, sources in Tamil Nadu said.

Mrs. Vallipuram Parvathi, the ailing mother of LTTE leader Mr. Velupillai Pirapaharan, was refused landing by Indian immigration officials at Chennai airport Friday night around 11:30 p.m.

Mrs. Parvathi, travelling from Malaysia, was seeking medical treatment in India. She was sent back to Malaysia in the same flight.

Tamil Nadu leaders Nedumaran and Vaiko were at the airport and they were later joined by the members of the VCK party of Thirumavalavan.

According to media sources citing immigration officials, Mrs. Parvathi is considered by India as a threat to law and order situation in the country.
