Oct 08, Colombo: Former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran has been arrested by the Organized Crime Prevention Division (OCPD) of police this morning (08), Police Media Spokesperson said.

The Jaffna district parliamentarian will be produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate today.

The Attorney General last month advised the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara to take legal action under the Penal Code against Maheswaran over her controversial statement on the LTTE.

Speaking an event at the Veerasingham Hall in Jaffna on 2nd July, Maheswaran has called for the reorganization of the outlawed terrorist group LTTE in order to curb the rising crime in the North.

The UNP Jaffna district parliamentarian resigned from her post of State Minister of Child Affairs on 5 July due to the criticism generated by her statement.
