Speaking to Sheena Kulal said, “Altogether 12 of us had left to visit Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu by a Tempo Traveller. When we reached Ramapura, we all stayed in the lodge. Our Tempo was parked near the lodge and only the driver was in the Tempo Traveller. A group of Tamil protesters barged in the lodge premises and smashed the window panes of the tempo traveller. The group was armed with wooden sticks and iron rods”.

He further said, “We all stayed there overnight at the lodge, but could not sleep for a minute. The Lodge management provided food to all the tourists. On September 13, we all reached Rameshwaram by Tempo Traveller with the help of Tamilnadu Police, from there we came via Thiruvananthapuram by train. We faced many problems in Tamil Nadu, It is a miracle that we are back home”, he added.
