CHENNAI: The Chennai Police on Monday said the non-bailable warrant of arrest issued by the IV Additional Sessions Judge, Chennai, against Sri Lankan Minister Anandan alias Douglas Devananda, in a murder case here, is still pending.
In his objection to the anticipatory bail application filed by the Minister, the Inspector of Police, Choolaimedu, R. Shibu Kumar, said the lower court had declared the accused in the case as “Proclaimed Offenders” under section 82 Cr.P.C. from August 28, 1994, and the court had also issued a direction for publication of the proclamation in daily newspapers. The 10 accused were evading appearance before the trial court and hence the proclamation procedure was taken against them as per law.
The case related to the murder of one Thirunavukkarasu on November 1, 1986.
Mr. Devananda said he came to know that a proclamation was pending against him. He filed a petition before the Madras High Court. In its order in December last year, the High Court declared that he was not a proclaimed offender as pronounced by the trial court. The court also directed him to file an anticipatory bail petition. He was ready to face trial and to abide by any condition imposed by the court. He would appear before the trial court as and when required. He prayed the court to grant him anticipatory bail.
