The president and two members of Chee'ra'ni Amman Temple arrested by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers, in the cordon and search launched in the temple following the Maasiyappiddi attack seriously injuring three soldiers, have been admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital with injuries due to torture, hospital sources said. The three elderly persons were admitted to the hospital five days ago.

The trustee board president is Nagarasa Nadarasa, 66, and the two members who suffered torture injuries are Thambiah Paramsothy, 59 and Kanthaiah Satkunarasa, 69.

SLA soldiers handed the three to Maanipaay police.

Maanippaay police produced the three arrestees in Mallaakam magistrate court and sought permission to admit them to hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The magistrate directed the police to admit the arrestees in Jaffna Teaching Hospital.

SLA Jaffna head office claimed that a large cache of explosives had been found during the search conducted in Chee'ra'ni Amman temple in Valikaamam.

Meanwhile, SLA soldiers arrested a young woman Sunday around 5:30 p.m in a cordon and search conducted in A'laveddi area in Valikaamam claiming that the National Identity Card she showed was false.

The arrested young woman, Arumugam Jeyamalar, 26, was handed over to Thellippa'ali police by the SLA soldiers.

The police produced her in Mallaakam court where its additional magistrate directed the police to detain her in remand prison.
