Counsel appeared on behalf of the aggrieved party submitted to court that the police had been purposely avoiding inquiring into the statement of Rambukwella. In reply to court the police said the inquiry into the statement made by Rambukwella has been continuing, legal sources said.

Four suspects in the Maheswaran killing were produced from remand before Ravindra Premaratne, Colombo Additional Magistrate Monday morning. The court ordered further remand for the suspects till May 5, sources said.
