CID to interrogate LTTE cadres in Colombo

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 December 2005, 13:49 GMT]
Mannar Magistrate Thursday agreed to an application by Police to send the five alleged LTTE cadres arrested by the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) on Tuesday evening to Colombo for further investigation by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The five, including two women, were arrested in Pallimunai Sea in Mannar district when they were traveling in a boat, police said.

One of the cadres, Ms Gunaratnam Puvaneswary alias Uthaya who took cyanide at the time of arrest, is now undergoing treatment in Vavuniya hospital.

Other four cadres, Arumugam Jeyanthan, Kanthasamy Paheerathan, Antony Sahayanathan and Sivagnanatham Sanjini alias Mathi are in remand in Anuradhapura prison, legal sources said.

The alleged LTTE cadres were not produced in Mannar court Thursday when the police application for transferring them to Colombo CID was taken up for inquiry, legal sources said.

According to Police authorities the suspects are LTTE cadres.

However, the wife of Antony Sahayanathan has made a complaint to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Mannar that her husband was a cultivator and a resident of Mulankavil.
