High school students among arrested

For 17 year old V. Pirassad, never had he anticipated that buying candles for a vigil in front of the Jinjang police station would have him spend 22 hours in lock-up. Here he recounts his experience of being arrested, handcuffed and denied to inform his mother. In detention, he was cursed at, threatened to be kicked and punched by the police officers.

16 year old Sharman Raj was part of the nationwide Hindraf convoy protesting against Interlok. After his release and went back to school, his name was mentioned during assembly, and another student had uttered, “Kaum India adalah kaum pariah.”
