Kudankulam row: SP Udayakumar likely to be arrested today

Kudankulam: The situation remains tense in Kudankulam with the police and protestors stationed near the nuclear plant site. Anti-nuclear movement leader SP Udayakumar may be be arrested on Wednesday even as more support comes in from India against corruption.

IAC member and social activist Arvind Kejriwal is also likely to join the protest on Wednesday. "If Udayakumar is listening to me then I would request him not to surrender the government and if he surrenders then the movement will die. We are with him," said Kejriwal.

A total of 51 people have been arrested so far. The protestors are demanding authorities to stop the loading of uranium fuel in first of the two nuclear reactors, which will take place on September 13.

Former Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan, too, moved the Supreme Court to stop the process on Tuesday.

Thousands of people have been fasting and spending nights at the make-shift camps, while protests have now spread to Chennai and Coimbatore.
