(CHENNAI, India) - 'Unconfirmed reports' say that David Bradbury, the Australian documentary maker, has been arrested in Kudankulum Nuclear Power Plant area.

I received a phone call from a common friend where David, his wife and their two year old son Omar were staying while in Delhi. We were to go to Narora NPP, near Delhi, to talk to the villagers and doctors, a plan that did not materialise. Later I heard that David's gone South.

We don't know who made the arrest and the charges. Kudankulum area has been garrisoned. However, to recap, over 55,000 opponents have been charged for various anti-national activities for opposing KNPP. Those opposing KNPP have been charged under sedition laws. If David has been arrested for anti-national activity here, we have a serious problem on hand.

I normally give my visiting friends from abroad a local mobile phone and our common friend had also given him a local mobile phone.

Please note that David has made many documentaries opposing the Nuclear establishment in Australia and elsewhere in the world. David also made a documentary of Wilfred Burchett for reporting from Hiroshima and subsequently on Burchett's reporting from behind the iron curtain including Vietnam. He has nine awards to his credit.

David's wife Treena has a number which is +91 96504 19340

Please send SMS to give them encouragement.

I am most worried about David's little boy Omar. He is just over two. The Indian Police can be most insensitive and brutal because this Indian Government is totally addicted to nuclear power.

I am trying to find out where he has been arrested, what are the charges and where is he lodged.

The sms is being responded in cryptic language, so we don't know what kind of trouble they are in.
