Colombo Feb 28: An Indian man who was jailed for five months over an alleged plan to kill president has been freed by magistrate order.

Officials informed the Colombo Magistrate court on Wednesday that there was no evidence to prove against Mersalin Thomas.

Acting Magistrate Jayantha Dias Nanayakkara ordered Thomas’s release over the alleged plot, but remanded him for violating Sri Lanka’s immigration law for overstaying without a valid visa.
