Advani condemns arrest of IAC activist

Senior BJP leader L.K. Advani on Sunday came out in support of S. Ravi, an activist of India Against Corruption who had tweeted against Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram’s son, and said he should not have been arrested till a court had found him guilty.

On his latest blog, Mr. Advani quoted the former Madras High Court judge, David Annoussamy’s remarks that going by the yardstick applied by the police in Mr. Ravi’s case, many tweeters would have to be arrested. — PTI
