Hindraf detainee ”planted by govt” : Waytha Moorthy

August 26th, 2008 - 4:34 pm ICT by ANI  

Kuala Lumpur, Aug 26 (ANI): Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leader P. Waytha Moorthy has accused Internal Security Act detainee K. Vasantha Kumar of being a government plant.
Waytha had alleged that Vasantha Kumar was planted by the Special Branch to infiltrate Hindraf.
“The two top government officials had confirmed that Vasantha Kumar was assigned to break up Hindraf lawyers and the organisation at the Kamunting detention camp,” Moorthy said.
Vasantha Kumar’’s wife, K. Vickneswary, however, has come out fighting in defence of her husband.
“It does not make sense for a Special Branch member to be detained under the ISA. The rumours have been around since the day he was arrested. It is only causing friction among the detained leaders, which would lead to the destruction of the movement,” said Vickneswary.
Vickneswary accused Waytha Moorthy of chickening out” of the rally by not posting bail when he was arrested along with Uthayakumar and V. Ganabatirau, another Hindraf member.
Police had arrested the trio on Nov 16 but Uthayakumar and Ganabatirau had posted bail and were released while Waytha Moorthy refused bail as a sign of protest and was sent to the Sungai Buloh prison. (ANI)
