Maheswaran was arrested this morning (08) by the OCPD stated over a controversial statement made by her recently. She had stated that the LTTE should be resurrected for the freedom of the Tamil people.

The arrest was made when she had arrived to record a statement on the said incident, according to the Police Media Spokesperson.

She was then presented before the Colombo Chief Magistrate Ranga Dissanayaka where OCPD DIG Kamal Silva requested the court to remand the suspect.

However, the court decided to grant bail on a personal bond worth Rs 500,000as no special points were presented for the remanding of the MP.

The case will be next heard on the 7th December and the magistrate ordered the police to inform the court on legal action taken against the suspect on that date.
