NAGAPATTINAM: A middle-aged MDMK activist created a flutter and his action sparked tension for about four hours after he climbed up a cell phone tower at Vandalur village near here on Thursday, to press the Union government against sending paramilitary forces to Thoothukudi, where police had fired on anti-Sterlite protesters on Tuesday, resulting in the death of at least 12 persons.

Police said the MDMK worker Thilagar of Vandalur all of sudden climbed up the cell phone tower today and condemned the police firing at Thoothukudi on Tuesday and Wednesday, which also injured many others.

 

On information, Revenue and Police officials rushed to the spot and attempted to persuade him to get down from the cell phone tower. He refused to come down and placed conditions, stating he will relent only if the paramilitary forces and ban order under Section 144 Cr. P.C. and state police forces are withdrawn from Thoothukudi.

Following this, 15 Fire and Rescue department staff climbed up the tower to persuade him to come down.

However, the MDMK party men contacted their general secretary Vaiko over the phone, who in turn persuaded his party worker, enabling his climb-down by the Fire and Rescue department personnel.
