Suspects allowed bail in transporting mines to Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 December 2004, 21:53 GMT]
The Chavakachcheri Magistrate Mr.P.Subramaniam Tuesday allowed three persons on personal bail in a sum of ten thousand rupees each in a case in which they have been charged for allegedly transporting anti-personnel mines and landmines in a vehicle through Muhamalai army checkpoint to Jaffna town, legal sources said.

All the three persons, Mr.Nagaraja Jeyarajah, Mr.Mariyathas Thevaseelan and Mr.Mylan Mohan alias Selvam are later identified as employees of a de-mining group, sources said.

Army soldiers arrested Mr.Nagaraja Jeyarajah, and Mr.Mariyathas Thevaseelan on November 7th when they were allegedly transporting anti-personnel mines and landmines in their vehicle to Jaffna town through Muhamalai checkpoint. They were remanded on the orders of the Chavakachcheri Magistrate, legal sources said.

When these two suspects were produced in court Tuesday, the Kodikamam Police made an application that another employee of the de-mining group Mr.Mylan Mohan who was present in court Tuesday should be included as the third suspect in the case. The Magistrate allowed the application, legal sources said.

Thereafter the Magistrate allowed all the three suspects on personal bail and ordered them to report to the Kodikamam Police on two Sundays in a month, legal sources said.

Meanwhile, Mr.Mylan Mohan, the third suspect in the case in a statement to the Police had said the anti-personnel mines and landmines were taken in the vehicle to show as specimen to the participants of a workshop on de-mining. But the other two suspects had accidentally failed to remove those explosives from the vehicle when being driven to Jaffna through Muhamalai checkpoint, sources said.
