Police spokesman Ajith Rohana today denied that former TNA parliamentarian M.K. Sivajalingam and seven others were arrested while transporting posters in Nelliyadi, Jaffna last night.
SP Rohana said the posters, which depicted the August 1983 prison riots, were seized as they could have incited communal violence.
Mr. Sivajalingam was unable to give a comment as he was still at the police station. (Nabeela Hussain)
