The government has registered cases against four NGOs for allegedly diverting funds to fuel protests in Kudankulam project and deported a German national for assisting the agitators.
“Cases have been registered against four NGOs for violation of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act,” Union Home Secretary R K Singh told reporters in New Delhi.
The action came days after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had stated that non-governmental organisations have received support from abroad for leading protests against the much- awaited nuclear power plant.
Bank accounts of the four NGOs have been frozen after an inquiry conducted by the Home Ministry reportedly found them diverting funds meant for charity to fuel the protests.
The cases were registered by the Crime Branch of the Tamil Nadu Police and the CBI.
