On April 3, Vaiko was sent to 15 days judicial custody by a Chennai court for speaking in favour of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009.
Vaiko had surrendered before the court and refused to apply for bail. Hence, the magistrate had to remand a judicial custody.
In 2009, the Chennai police had booked him for charges including the Section 124 A (sedition) and 13(1)b of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act, 2004.
