Tamils protested against the presence of two Sri Lankan military officials at Gateway Hotel, at the Coonoor hill station in Tamil Nadu on Sunday, reports NDTV.

The military personnel, reported to be a Rear Admiral and a Major General, arrived on Sunday evening, prompting 25 MDMK members to protest. They were arrested by Indian police officers as they attempted to march to the hotel.

NDTV reports that there remains a 'heavy police deployment' outside the hotel, as more Tamil protests are anticipated.

The Sri Lankan military are said to be taking part in a one-day programme at the Defence Services Staff College, along side 25 attendees from 10 other countries.

The incident comes amidst recent public anger at the presence of Sri Lankan Air Force personnel at the Tambaram base in Tamil Nadu.
