Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has said that nine personnel from the Sri Lankan Air Force, who are being trained in Chennai, must immediately be sent back.

The Sri Lankan air force personnel arrived recently at the Tambaram Air Force station in Chennai for a nine-month training period.

“It’s inappropriate when countries are demanding action against Lanka for violations during the war,” Ms Jayalalithaa said. “This is anti-Tamils. I condemn it,” she added.

Opposition parties have agreed. DMK chief M Karunanidhi has backed the demand for expulsion. MDMK chief V Gopalswamy, popularly known as Vaiko, has warned of a huge protest outside the air force base.
