A total of 66 ethnic Indians will be tried by a Malaysian court on charges of participating in an illegal rally organised by a Hindu rights group against the alleged marginalisation of the community and causing mischief.

The 66 include the opposition Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Supreme Council member N Gobalakrishnan. All have been charged with being involved in unlawful assembly in front of the Sri Subramaniar Temple in Batu Caves on November 25 last year, which was organised by the non-governmental Hindu Rights Action Forum (Hindraf).
