The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief, M. Karunanidhi, expressed shock on seeing the pictures of LTTE leader Prabakaran’s son Balachandran in military custody before being shot dead, according to M. K. Stalin, party treasurer.

“Mr. Karunanidhi is terribly upset after reading the report in The Hindu . It shows serious concern he has for the suffering Tamils,” he said while addressing a protest demonstration organised by the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) at Avuri maidan near bus stand here on Tuesday.

Other speakers, including K. Veeramani, leader of the Dravidar Kazhagam, Thol Thirumavalan, leader of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, said the pictures were ample proof of the atrocities committed on the innocent Tamils by the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime in the island nation. This is just a tip of the icebergs. Many more skeletons are in the cupboard of Rajapaksa and they should be brought to the notice of the world, they said.
