Murder weapon in Nimalarajan case seized

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 August 2002, 22:25 GMT]
The Police have claimed that the weapon allegedly used for killing journalist Mylvaganam Nimalarajan on 19th October 2001 has been recovered from Jaffna EPDP office. The seized weapon is of 9 mm category, the State run Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) night reported Sunday quoting police sources.

The Jaffna Magistrate R.T.Viknaraja last week issued warrant to search the offices of EPDP in Jaffna and Kayts in regard to the killing of journalist Nimalarajan on an application made by the OIC Ranjit de Silva of the special investigation team. The police made this application consequent to a statement made by an EPDP member who was arrested in Trincomalee in connection with the journalist murder.

The special investigation team of the CID conducted a search operation in the Jaffna EPDP office and seized a weapon of 9 mm, which had been allegedly used, for killing the journalist, police said.

The letter of authority produced by the EPDP officials permitting them to keep the weapon was for a 7.62 mm category and not of 9 mm., sources said.

The CID is to submit a special report regarding the seizure of the weapon to the Jaffna Magistrate this week, SLBC reported.
