Colombo court releases Jaffna youth

[TamilNet, Sunday, 17 June 2007, 03:16 GMT]
A Jaffna youth working in a Colombo business establishment as cashier was released by Colombo-Maligakanda Magistrate Friday on a report by the Maradana police that did not find any evidence in the investigation to charge him for any offence, legal sources said.

Nadarajah Ramesh, 22, from Churuvil in Kayts in Jaffna district was arrested on May 30 when he was walking along a road located close to the Maradana police station.

Defence counsel, Mr.T.Saravanarajah, told the court that his client had submitted all documents including the national identity card (NIC) to prove his identity and the reason for his stay in Colombo.

But the police took him into custody, as his birthplace was Jaffna, as identified by his NIC.

Maradana Police did not object the release of the suspect.
