One more suspect in the same team was released on bail by the Court.

An Army  spokesman said that the four suspects on hearing that two daughters of K. Madaswamy of Theravil, Udayarkattu, Pudukudiyiruppu, were volunteering to join the Sri Lanka Army Women’s Corps (SLAWC) as recruits under the ongoing women’s recruitment drive in Nanthikadal, Oddusuddan and Pudukudiyiruppu areas via respective Divisional Secretariats, had threatened to assault the father of those two females on Monday (3) for giving his consent to the daughters to enlist in the Army.
