CHENNAI: The Puthur police station in Cuddalore District was attacked by members of the Tamil Nadu Liberation Army (TNLA) on April 6, 1991 and took away arms and ammunition and now after more than 25 years of this incident the Madras High Court has confirmed life imprisonment for three ultras. Six other ultras were acquitted of all charges by a division bench of the court. The gang barged into the Puthur police station and attacked the policemen present in which constable Rajendran died and a sub-inspector and three other police personnel suffered grievous injuries. The Puthur police registered a case punishable under the Explosive Substances Act and Arms Act. The case was later transferred to the CBCID, Police said. In the year 2000 a breakthrough came when Police tracked the suspects down to Ponnamaravathi in Pudukottai district. A special court in Poonamallee on March 24, 2014 awarded life sentence to nine accused. The court sentenced Su alias Sundaram alias Ramasamy alias Anbalagan to undergo seven years rigorous imprisonment (RI). Another suspect, Lenin alias Mahasangamam, died during the trial.  The HC bench has now confirmed life term only for Suba Elavarasan alias Pandian alias Vallavan, Kumar alias Gopalsamy , and Amulraj alias Selvam. The lower court’s verdict was set aside by the judges in respect of Venkatesan alias `Radio’ Venkatesan, Murugesan, Maran alias Manimaran alias Senguttuvan, Nallarasu, Ravi alias Velmurugan and Ilango Mani.    ]]>
