On the 100th day of the Sterlite protest in Tuticorin was really a bad day for the protesters, as violence peaked on Tuesday. Police opened gunfire against the protesters, killing 11. The victims included two women and a teenager.
Actor turned politician Kamal Hasan raised his support for the protesters. Below is his tweet:
I’m on the way to Thoothukudi to participate in the sad tragedy of my Brothers and Sisters who gave me warm welcome last week.
