By Chennabasaveshwar

MDMK supporters protested in front of Malaysian Consulate in Chennai after MDMK Chief Vaiko was denied entry into Malaysia on Friday.

Vaiko was questioned over his alleged links with Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam after being denied entry into Malaysia on Friday. Vaiko was stopped at Kuala Lumpur Airport and questioned for several hours.

MDMK Chief Vaiko

Last month, a court in Chennai has granted bail to Vaiko, who had been in jail since April 3, in a 2009 sedition case.

In 2009, police had registered a case under IPC sections 124 (sedition) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, place of birth, residence, language) against Vaiko for a speech he had given while releasing his book, 'Naan Kutram Sattugiren' (I am Making the Accusation).
