SALEM: Salem Central Prison Superintendent (in-charge) Durairaj on Monday identified two accused in the bus burning case at Ilakkampatti near Dharmapuri on February 2, 2000 in which three girl students of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University were burnt alive. The incident came in the wake of the conviction of then former Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, in the Kodaikanal Pleasant Hotel case.

Deposing before First Additional District Sessions Judge D. Krishna Raja here, the jail official, as instructed by Special Public Prosecutor R. Srinivasan, identified the body marks in accused No.4, Muniappan and accused No. 9 Ramar. These had been recorded in registers when the duo were lodged at the Central Prison immediately after the incident. He said as per court directives, both were released on bail.
