Thirukumaran Nadesan, husband of Deputy Minister Nirupama Rajapaksa, speaking to Ada Derana refuted Indian media reports which claimed he was attacked by a group of activists. However, he stated that he was mobbed by a group of pro-LTTE activists in Rameswaram, India today.

Mr. Nadesan added that he was surrounded by the activists who demonstrated shouting slogans against the Sri Lankan government.

Earlier today Indian media reported that Nadesan was attacked by activists of the Vaiko-led MDMK and Nam Tamilar Iyakkam, led by Seeman, when he was coming out of the house of the Ramanathaswamy Temple priest, after performing ‘pooja’.

Indian media alleged that the activists, who thought the pooja was being done for the good of the Sri Lankan government, had broken the gate and door of the house and had hurled stones and slippers.

Nirupama Rajapaksa, Deputy Minister of Water Supply and Drainage, is the niece of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
