The Court permitted the CID today to further detain former Chief Minister of the Eastern Provincial Council Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan until December 10th for questioning.

Former Eastern Provincial Chief Minister Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan was arrested recently in connection with the murder of  former TNA MP Joseph Pararajasingham.

Court had earlier permitted the CID to detain and question Pillayan in connection with the murder, and he was produced before Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya today.

CID informed Court today that the suspect should be further questioned in order to trace the firearm which was used in the murder and to trace the vehicle in which the assailants traveled to commit the murder.

Having considered the CID plea, the magistrate permitted the CID to detain the suspect for another 36 days.
