MDMK chief Vaiko detained at Kuala Lumpur airport, to be sent back

Chennai: MDMK chief Vaiko was on Friday stopped from entering Malaysia and detained at the Kuala Lumpur airport where officials questioned him over his alleged links to the LTTE. He will be sent back to Chennai by a Malaysian Airlines flight Friday night, the MDMK (Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) said in a release here. He is expected to reach here by 10.45 pm.
The leader was scheduled to attend the wedding reception of the daughter of the Deputy Chief Minister of Malaysian state of Penang, P Ramasamy, on June 10.
The party said when Vaiko landed at the Kuala Lumpur airport this morning, immigration authorities told him that he had been banned from entering the country since his name figured “in the list of persons dangerous to Malaysia.”
Officials told him that “he belonged to the LTTE in Sri Lanka,” and quizzed him over the outfit, the party said.
