Court extends remand for Maheswaran murder suspect

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 July 2008, 17:44 GMT]
The Colombo Chief Magistrate, Ravindra Premaratne, ordered further remand for the first suspect in the Colombo district parliamentarian T.Maheswaran till July 14 when he was produced in court Thursday, legal sources in Colombo said. Three other suspects in the case were released on an earlier date as the police informed court that there was no evidence to implicate them in the crime.

Officials of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) informed court that the Attorney General has already served indictment on the first suspect Collin Valentine in the Colombo High Court with the murder of parliamentarian Maheswaran.

The CID submitted to court that they would inform court when the case against the first suspect would be taken up for inquiry in the High Court, and moved for another date to furnish the information.

Taking into consideration of the submissions by the police and the defense counsel in this regard, the Chief Magistrate ordered further remand for the first suspect, legal sources said.

Maheswaran was shot dead on Janurary 1 this year when he was inside the Colombo Ponnambalavaneeswarar Temple praying.
