Expressing solidarity with anti-Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project protestors, now observing a relay fast at Idinthakarai, a section of the residents of neighbouring Kooththenkuzhi commenced a similar agitation on Friday [8 Jun 2012].

After showering flower petals in the sea to mark the World Oceans Day, the villagers and their children started the relay fast at Kooththenkuzhi.

In the meanwhile, the Chennai Solidarity Group for Kudankulam Struggle, in a statement alleged that the Village Administrative Officer of the Vijayapathi panchayat was refusing to endorse property documents of those who had come forward to give surety to anti-nuclear activists Sathish Kumar and Mughilan, who have been granted bail. Both of them were released on Friday.

Eight Idinthakarai residents – four each for Satish and Mughilan – had come forward to produce surety valued at Rs.10,000 each to fulfil the bail conditions.
