Mr.Nadaraja Premachandran alias Jegan, a political activist of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), Wednesday lodged a complaint at the Jaffna regional office of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka that the Sri Lanka Army at Muhamalai checkpoint had humiliated him when he was on his way to Kilinochchi, human rights officials in Jaffna said.

Mr. Premachandran has stated in his complaint that he came to Jaffna from Kilinochchi on leave, and after spending several days in Jaffna, he was returning to Kilinochchi when he was arrested by the SLA soldiers at Muhamalai check point on Tuesday around noon and he was handcuffed and dragged by SLA soldiers in the presence of public to the Chavakachcheri police station.

At the police station, the police wrote a statement in the Sinhala language purported to have been made by him and he had been forced to sign that statement. Thereafter, he was taken to the Chunnakam police station and there also the police wrote a statement in the Sinhala language and forced him to sign it.

Mr. Premachandran said he was released on the same day evening.

The Jaffna regional co-ordinator of the HRC, Mr.Ruwan Chandrasekara, said that he would be taking action on the complaint made by the LTTE activist on Thursday, media sources in Jaffna said.
