The Leader of Democratic Militants Party, Venthan has been grilled continuously for 5 hours by the TID at the 2nd Floor of CID building.
From 9.30 a.m. to 02.30 p.m. on Saturday, he had been grilled by the TID. The TID officers had inquired about, Maveerar day observation, Muliwaikkal Commemorations and the activities of Democratic Militant Party and had recorded his statement.
Specifically, he had been asked during the inquiries about places where the Democratic Militants had celebrated Maveerar Day , and Why Muliwaikkal commemoration is held?
I told them that Muliwaikkal commemoration is held to remember our kith and kin killed at Muliwaikkal. Two officers inquired me and recorded my statement. When asked about the activities of the party, I told them that the objective of the party is to coordinate former Militants and engage them in democratic politics. I believe that this kind of inquiries are undertaken to curb the activities of the former militants. This is to instill a “2nd floor fear psychosis” among the former Militants, he said.
Venthan, who had been detained in Booza and Magazine prisons for more than 2 years, was integrated into the society after rehabilitation.
