Nimalarajan murder suspects further remanded

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 August 2002, 18:11 GMT]
The Jaffna acting Magistrate Tuesday allowed an application made by the Police seeking permission to send the 9 mm pistol and two spent bullets which had been recovered from the office of the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) to Colombo for forensic examination and report. The Police recovered the pistol and bullets when they raided the EPDP office, August 9.

When the journalist Mylvaganam Nimalarajan murder case was taken up for inquiry Tuesday, Attorney-at-Law Mr.K.S.Ratnavelu, appeared on behalf of the deceased journalist, submitted to court that the receipt produced in court by one EPDP activist Poothan Kunasingham was related to the purchase of a 7.62 mm pistol. The receipt had been issued in 1999 by the then Officer Commanding of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna Major General LC.R.Gunawardene.

The police further submitted to court the list of names of police and army personnel who were on duty at the sentry point at Racca Road, when unidentified gunmen shot and killed Mr.M.Nimalarajan.

The Police further told court that they were in the process of recording statements from those police and army personnel now serving in other parts of the country regarding the murder of Mr.Nimalarajan.

The acting Magistrate Ms Sarojini Ilangovan ordered further remand for the suspects, Kandasamy Jegatheeswaran, Palanichamy Visvan, David Michael Collin and Karalaingham Sinthuparan alias Patcha, till September 3 and put off the further inquiry on that date.
