11 alleged Hindraf supporters held

11 people were arrested when they attempted to submit a letter at Prime Minister Department’s office in Putrajaya today.

"“We were trying to obtain permission from the security guards for Vwaishhnnavi to submit her letter. They said that we were from Hindraf, but we insisted that we were concerned Indians who were accompanying Vwaishnnavi,” said Police Watch Malaysia coordinator S Jayathas, who was also held.

Vwaishnnavi, the six-year-old niece of detained Hindraf leader P Uthayakumar was with the group when they were held.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman confirmed the arrest of eight men and three women during the incident. He clarified that Vwaishhnnavi has not been arrested and is in her mother’s care.
