Thoothukudi Firing: Protesters shot dead were prominent Anti-Sterlite leaders

Thoothukudi Firing: According to TNIE report, four of the protesters who died during the 100th day of protest against the copper smelting plant in Tuticorin were important leaders of anti-Sterlite protests.

All the four have been shot at in the head or chest, which gives way for suspicion whether they were mainly targeted.

Tamilarasan, the coordinator of anti-Sterlite movement, Snowlin, coordinator of the protest at Madha Koil locality, Maniraj, coordinator of Damodar Nagar locality and Gladston, coordinator of Metupatti locality, was the alleged leaders of the anti-Sterlite movement who were killed in open police firing.
