Chennai: Tamil Nadu-based environmental activist T Mugilan, missing for nearly six months, was found at a railway station in neighboring Andhra Pradesh on Saturday. He was brought back to Tamil Nadu after the police handed over the activist to Tamil Nadu police at Katpadi around midnight.

Mugilan was spotted by passenger at the Tirupati railway station on Platform No 1 at around 7 pm. The passenger, reportedly an acquaintance of Mugilan’s family, alerted the local police and then informed the activist’s wife. Mugilan’s family and friends from Tamil Nadu have informed the Tamil Nadu police.

T Mugilan has been missing since February 15 – the day he held a news conference in state capital Chennai alleging police complicity in the Tuticorin police firing last year in which 13 demonstrators protesting against Vedanta’s copper smelter were killed. The activist disappeared under mysterious circumstances after boarding a train to Madurai at Egmore station.

Mugilan’s disappearance prompted a months-long social media campaign asking with the hash tag #WhereIsMugilan with demonstrations in the USA and Australia. Politicians from the state had demonstrated against his disappearance, even as human rights NGO Amnesty International urged the authorities to investigate his disappearance.

A video in which he can be seen raising slogans against the plans to dump nuclear waste in Kudankulam and demanding the release of Tamils locked in jails due to lack of legal help has been widely shared on social media.

Tamil Nadu police have been on the lookout for him in a rape and cheating case.
