We had no involvement in the attacked on the Sri Lankan Maha Bodhi Vihara in Chennai yesterday, the pro-LTTE group ‘Naam Tamilar Iyakkam’ said in a statement today. Sebastian Seeman says that two member of the organization have been arrested in connection to the incident.

Around 10-15 people had reportedly launched an attack on the Vihara while three monks, two Sri Lankan monks and One Nepalese monk had sustained minor injuries.

There are several unsolved crimes in Chennai that drag on for months. But two arrests have been made already for this incident (attack on the Maha Bodhi Vihara in Chennai) which occurred just yesterday, the founder of ‘Naam Tamilar Iyakkam’ Sebastian Seeman states in the release.

He accuses that the arrests made were merely a “comic scene” staged by the government of India for the people of Sri Lanka.

In regard to the group’s reaction towards the arrests of their members Seeman expressed that “We don’t fear such arrests made by the Tamilnadu government”.

“We will take the necessary steps needed to prove them innocent and to get them released.”

The Tamilnadu government which didn’t take any action to provide Indian fishermen with protection has supplied the Maha Bodhi Vihara in Chennai with tight security following the attack, the Indian film director further pointed out.
