Vaiko may be arrested again: Chennai police

india Updated: Apr 12, 2009 21:37 IST

MDMK leader Vaiko and actor-turned-politician Vijaya T Rajendherr may be arrested for alleged anti-national speeches, Chennai police Commissioner K Radhakrishnan said on Sunday.

"The copies of the speeches by Vaiko and Rajendherr are being analysed for various legal aspects. We have already registered a case against Vaiko. There are possibilities of (police) arresting them," Radhakrishnan told reporters.

Vaiko has already been arrested twice on the same charges.

Former legislator Rajendherr has switched parties several times. He leads a party All India Latchiya DMK and currently hosts a talk show on Sun TV, a channel part-owned by Dayanidhi Maran, the DMK candidate for Central Chennai constituency.

Rajendherr is a bitter critic of Vaiko and the actor-turned-politician Vijaykanth, all of whom espouse the cause of sufferings of the Tamil ethnic minority in Sri Lanka.
