Chennai: Police have booked anti-nuclear protesters including S P Uthayakum in connection with the explosion at a village near Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in which six persons including three children were killed.

They have been booked for offences including culpable homicide not amounting to murder and criminal conspiracy among others, the sources said.
