Hindraf rally: 26 charged with attempted murder for attack on cop

Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf)
Hindraf 31 released
hindraf 181207

Hindraf 31 released

Crack in ‘Hindraf 5’
Saturday, January 12, 2008
DAP MP Kulasegaran has hinted in his speech at a Ponggal harvesting festival yesterday in Port Klang that there is a crack in the relationship of the five Hindraf leaders arrested under Malaysian draconian Internal Security Act (ISA), without going in details. Also, he appealed to the media present not to report on this matter. But many in the crowed were whispering.
Apparently, four of the arrested -- Ganabathirau, Vasanthakumar, Kenghadharan and Manoharan have turned against Uthayakumar accusing him of misappropriating the Hindraf funds collected from the public running to more than a million. It seems the four had made a police report.
