Where is social activist Mugilan? Soon after in a press conference in Chennai he alleged the role of senior police and government officials in the violence in Thoothukudi and in the police firing during the anti-Sterlite protest, Mugilan became untraceable.
After the presser on February 15, Mugilan was supposed to board a train to Madurai. His friend Sridhar had agreed to receive him at the station. However, there is no communication with him after the press conference. When last time reached, he told Sridhar about the threats from Sterlite officials and even the police, reports the New Indian Express.
The police complaint and habeas corpus plea in the High Court were not fruitful. Tamil Nadu CB-CID has put up posters promising rewards for any information about the activist’s whereabouts.
His colleagues allege that police were not quick in reacting to the complaints. Muglian, a native of Erode, resigned from the state service to actively participate in social service. He was also part of the protests against the Koodamkulam nuclear plant.
