A pro-Elam group in Tamil-Nadu has protested outside the Chidambaram stadium in Chennai during the ongoing India – Australia match, against the presence of Sri Lanka’s Kumar Dharmasena in the state.


Dharmasena is one of the umpires officiating in the ongoing test match.


Police has arrested 50 of those protestors.


The latest protest is a part of a series of similar protest campaigns erupted in Tamil-Nadu against Sri Lanka and its nationals visiting the southern Indian state for either for business purposes or pilgrimage.
