United National Party Jaffna District Parliamentarian and former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran was granted bail by Colombo Chief Magistrate Ranga Dissanayaka when she was produced before Court by the OCPD on Monday, October 8.

Earlier she was arrested by OCPD allegedly for making a controversial statement 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.

OCPD DIG Kamal Silva requested the court to remand the suspect. However, the court decided to grant bail on a personal bond worth Rs 500,000 holding that no special grounds were cited for remanding her. 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.

Senior Defence Counsel Thavarasa appeared for Vijayakala Maheswaran.
