A group of pro-LTTE activists blocked the way of outgoing Sri Lankan Deputy High Commissioner in Chennai P M Amza as he was leaving after attending a felicitation function here.

Amza was being escorted to his car after the felicitation by the Andhra Chamber of Commerce late last evening when the Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam (PDK) activists assembled in front of the vehicle and started shouted slogans against him, police said today.

The group blocked his way for about 20 minutes before police and organisers stepped in and made way for Amza’s exit.

The protesters caused some minor damage to the envoy’s car, they said.
