After Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Vaiko, Tamil film directors Seeman and Ameer were on Friday arrested on charges of making inflamatory speeches during a rally taken out by the cinema industry in support of Sri Lankan Tamils at Rameswaram on October 19.
Police said the two will be taken to Rameswaram for further interrogation.
