Kuala Lumpur, Apr.4 (ANI): The wives of Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) leaders R. Kengadharan and V. Ganabatirau are happy over the release of their husbands.
Kengadharan’s wife, Dr M. Kalaivani, 41, thanked Prime Minister Najib Razak for freeing him.
“I am elated. Our family is really grateful to the prime minister for this gesture. But I’m still sad for the families of the other three HINDRAF leaders who are still under detention,” the New Strait Times quoted her, as saying yesterday.
Ganabatirau’s wife, B. Buvaneswary, 33, said this was the news the family had been waiting for.
“We are surprised to hear about his release. All of us are extremely excited as this is the moment we have been waiting for,” she said.
She said her first priority was to get Ganabatirau to hospital to undergo surgery on his infected neck bone. (ANI)
