By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, JUNE 18. The Karnataka High Court today directed the State Government to file within two weeks a statement of objections to the bail petition filed by V.R. Nedunchezhian.

In his petition filed today, Prof. Nedunchezhian submitted that he had been arrested on July 4, 2003 and was now lodged in the Central Prison here.

The chargesheet said that between 1996 and 2002, Prof. Nedunchezhian entered into a conspiracy to disturb the peace in the State, to create a separate nation and to support the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader, V. Prabhakaran. It said Prof. Nedunchezhian started the Karnataka Tamiliar Iyakkam.

Justice Majage adjourned further hearing of the petition and told the State to file objections.
