Erode (Tamil Nadu), Dec 23 (IANS) A court here Tuesday rejected the bail petitions of film director Seeman and Tamil nationalist leaders Kolathur Mani and P. Maniarasan, who have been held for allegedly making inflammatory, secessionist speeches.Sessions Judge Asokan rejected their bail pleas.

Seeman and Mani were Friday sent to prison on a 14-day remand while Maniarasan was arrested that day under section 505 of the Indian Penal Code (inciting common public and government servants to mutiny) after repeated complaints from Congress leaders alleging they had denigrated late former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi’s sacrifice and had continued inflammatory, secessionist speeches here a few days ago.
