[TamilNet, Thursday, 23 August 2007, 18:02 GMT]
The Colombo Chief Magistrate Thursday ordered the release of Brammasri Sivaramalinga Kurukal Manohara Kurukal, chief priest of Kayts Muthumaariamman Temple and a trustee Mr. Nadarajah Sivarajah on a report of the Sri Lankan Attorney General that there was no evidence to implicate both under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

The Sri Lanka Navy and Police took both into custody on May 3 at Kayts on a report that explosives were hidden in the Muthumaariamman Temple. Since then they had been in remand under the PTA.
