It has been identified that one of the 13 persons killed in Tamil Nadu police fire was a Sri Lankan.
 
The police opened fire in Tuticorin on Wednesday on a protest which was held against the expansion of the Sterlite plant.
 
It was found that the victim was a rehabilitated LTTE cadre and he had gone to Tamil Nadu recently.

P. Mahendran, chief of Tuticorin police, said 18 policemen were injured in the clashes.

Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has ordered a judicial inquiry into the shootings but defended the police response.

The company's operational licence had expired in April and the company was waiting for the government to renew it.

Residents who say the copper smelter is causing environmental damage, have been protesting against it for months.
