The children of Life-sentenced Tamil Political Prisoner, Anantha Suthkaran disappointed into sorrow as the promise of Maithri to release their father before New Year has turned a lie.
The two children of Anantha Suthakaran, Kanitharan and Sangeetha had met the President few days back and requested him to release their father. The President also promised that they will with their father before the New Year. Following this we expected that our father will come to them before the New Year. However our expectation has turned into disappointment they said.
As our mother also has died, we are suffering without any solace in this New Year, said the children of Anantha Suthakaran said.
Arrested and detained under the PTA, Suthakaran was sentenced to life last year. His wife died on last 15th and thereafter the appealed for their father’s release to high officials including the President and the Northern Governor.
However as Ananthasuthakaran had not been released, the children have been mentally affected badly and I am distressed in seeing their current predicament, said the grandmother of the children.
