A Sri Lankan navy officer, who was arrested after a girl was killed last month in Pungudutivu during an accident with a navy vehicle, was released on bail on Thursday.
The nine year old girl was on her way to school on her uncle's motorbike when the collision took place on January 24.
The victim, Kesana Thirulangam was killed at the scene. Her uncle was admitted to hospital with serious injuries.
The bail hearing took place in Kayts Court on Thursday before the Justice A M M Riyal.
