Navy rescues two Tamils from sandbank in Mannar Sea

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 July 2005, 14:07 GMT]
Mannar Magistrate Mr.N.M.M.Abdullah Tuesday ordered remand till July 22 for two persons-one Sri Lankan Tamil and another Indian citizen when they were produced by Talaimannar Police on a report that they had been rescued from a sandbank in Mannar sea by Sri Lanka Navy Monday evening around 5 p.m., legal sources said.

Both suspects had been identified as Muttukani Kumar (19) of Rameswaram in South India and Mohan Paranapass (44) of Kumaparapuram in Killinochchi. Mohan Paranapass left Sri Lanka about twenty years ago and since then had been living in Rameswaram.

Both left Rameswaram by an Indian fishing boat. Boatmen left them on a sandbank in the sea. SLN patrol craft had spotted them on the sandbank and rescued, legal sources said.

Meanwhile the Mannar Magistrate in another case ordered the civil authorities to send three Tamil women to their native villages in the Trincomalee district when they were produced in court by the Talaimannar Police on a report that they had illegally returned from India. Both women surrendered to the Talaimannar Police Monday when they landed in a boat from Rameswaram, legal sources said.
