A week after resorting to an indefinite fast demanding his release from the special camp in Tiruchi, Sri Lankan Tamil refugee K Dhayabararaj gave up the agitation following the intervention of senior officials who promised to help, The Hindu newspaper reported today.

While Dhayabararaj is lodged in the special camp in Tiruchi, his wife Udayakala was detained in the special quarantine camp in Mandapam, Ramanathapuram district.

Claiming that the detention was illegal since there was no case pending against them, the couple launched a fast-unto-death agitation on March 17. Five days later, the State government ordered the release of Udayakala.

Udayakala who is in Chennai to meet the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commissioner said there was no valid reason for the authorities to detain Dhayabararaj in the special camp that lacked basic amenities.
