Chennai, (Tamil Nadu), [India], Jan. 20 (ANI): Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president M. K. Stalin, who was taken into preventive custody today for halting a train in a protest against the ban of Jallikattu, has been released. He was taken into preventive custody for joining the 'Rail Roko Agitation' at Chennai's Mambalam station. DMK workers, in huge numbers, broke the barricading here while voicing their support for Jallikattu. While holding the 'Rail Roko agitation', headed by Stalin, the DMK workers halted a train at Mambalam Railway Station by lying down on the railway tracks. The widespread pro-Jallikattu protests have lead to charges and counter-charges by political parties, even as the call for legal remedies to revive the bull-taming game is getting louder. (ANI)
