Senior defence counsel, G. Devadoss, grilled Mr. Thangavel on the June 29, 2002 meeting addressed by Mr. Vaiko and the other MDMK leaders at Tirumangalam.
The witness said that except Mr. Vaiko, he did not know the others who addressed the meeting.
Except P.S. Maniam, all the other accused Mr. Vaiko, Ganesamurthy, Veera Ilavarasan, Bhoominathan, Pulavar Sevanthiappan, Madurai Ganesan, Alagusundaram and Nagarajan were brought from the Vellore central prison amid tight security to the court in the morning. But the cross-examination began only around 3 p.m. after the defence lawyers came from the High Court. The cross-examination will continue tomorrow.
