Anti-nuclear power activist Udayakumar detained at IGIA via The Indian Express

Activist S P Udayakumar, who spearheaded the campaign against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KNPP) as the convenor of the People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), was stopped and interrogated at Terminal-3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport on Tuesday. Udayakumar was on his way to Kathmandu to attend a UN consultation on human rights and was eventually not allowed to travel by the immigration authorities in Delhi, with a warning that he should “not try to travel out of the country”. “I feel my human rights have been violated systematically by the state and I feel very frustrated in this land of democracy and freedom,” Udayakumar told The Indian Express over the phone.

Udayakumar has against him 380-odd cases under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 19 charges related to attempt to murder, 16 charges related to sedition, and 16 charges related to waging or attempting to wage war. His passport had already been impounded by the Tamil Nadu police. – See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/anti-nuclear-power-activist-udayakumar-detained-at-igia/#sthash.qtncZ1Pj.dpuf
