ERODE: Judicial Magistrate Court-I, Erode, has dismissed bail applications of film director Seeman, Tamil Desiya Pothuvudaimai Katchi’s Maniarasan and Periyar Dravida Kazhagam’s Kolathur Mani.

The Erode North Police has registered a case against them for abetting unlawful activities and inciting offence against the State by their speeches delivered at a public function here on December 14.

The police arrested Mr. Seeman in Theni, Mr. Mani in Mettur and Mr. Maniarasan in Chennai.

They were produced before Judicial Magistrate Court I, which remanded them to custody till December 31. The trio on Tuesday moved bail applications stating that speaking in support of Sri Lankan Tamils and the LTTE did not amount to waging war against the State and disrupting public harmony or inciting violence.

The court dismissed the applications on the ground that the case was under investigation and the witnesses were yet to be examined.
