The Chilaw (Chilaapam) Magistrate Monday released four Tamil youths who were arrested in April at Uddapu, a traditional Tamil village in the northwestern province alleging that they were members of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
Two of them, Suntharavadivel Jeyaganesh and Saravanamuthu Wijeyakumaran are residents of Trincomalee. Muthulingam Gunanathan is a resident of Jaffna and Thangaratnam Balasubramaniam is a resident Uddapu village.
Police did not produce evidence against the suspects to charge them for assisting the LTTE by collecting money when they were produced in Court.
The police did not raise any objections to the release, legal sources said.
