[TamilNet, Monday, 04 March 2013, 23:10 GMT]
Demanding justice for the Eezham Tamils and international action against the genocide-accused Sri Lankan state, a social activist from Kadaloor (Cuddalore), Tamil Nadu immolated himself on Monday. Citing police sources, the PTI reported that Mani, a 41-year-old social worker of coastal Nallavaadu village in Kadaloor district, “doused himself with petrol and set himself ablaze” at the Collectorate complex, raising slogans against Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa and demanding that he be tried in the International Court for alleged war crimes. Later reports said Mr. Mani succumbed to his serious injuries at the Kadaloor government hospital. Separately, there have been protests in Chennai against Sri Lanka in the context of the upcoming session in Geneva.

MDMK leader Vaiko, veteran Tamil nationalist activist Pazha Nedumaran, and several other leaders and activists of Tamil organizations were arrested as they attempted to picket the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission in Chennai.

They were demanding a closure of the office and an independent international investigation into the genocidal war crimes of Sri Lanka, sources from Chennai said.

The PTI also reported that “expressing their solidarity with the Tamils cause, a majority of advocates in the principal and Madurai bench of Madras High Court boycotted court proceedings”.

“Lawyers' associations including Tamil Nadu Advocates Association, Women Lawyers' Association and Madras High Court Advocates Association extended support to the boycott and their members boycotted court proceedings across the state.”
