EPDP cadre sought on molestation charge

[TamilNet, Friday, 06 March 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Jaffna Magistrate M Thirunavukarasu, issued the second warrant on Tuesday for the arrest of Thiagarajah Srikanthan, a member of the Eelam Peoples' Democratic Party (EPDP), on the charge of molesting a young woman S. Pushpalatha (21).

The girl had sought refuge with members of the EPDP after she was allegedly raped by Gopalapillai Sivananthan and while she was in the group's care, one of its cadres called Thiagarajah Srikanthan had attempted to molest her, said legal sources in Jaffna.

The Magistrate inquired from the police why the suspect Thiagarajah was not produced in court on the warrant issued by him in January this year.

Pushpalatha is now in care of the Salvation Army.
