Three Navy personnel were arrested and detained by the CID in connection with the killing of TNA Parliamentarian Nadarajah Raviraj and a policeman in 2006, police said today.
The parliamentarian was shot dead by gunmen in Colombo in 2006 November.
Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the arrested were being interrogated under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).
“The three soldiers including two officers will also be interrogated over the incidents of disappearance of several youth reported in 2006,” he said.(DS)

The basic fact is that Naval staff do not go about murderinganyone - it is who made the command to eliminate him andwhy. This needs clear sorting for the benefit of all citizens.

I dont think so. Because, Raviraj is parlimentarian and Prabhakaran is a terrorist.

Are this idiotic? Raviraj was a civilianand an elected MP, Prabakaran was a terrorist.

What a useless comment by dperera. He wants to kill all innocent Tamils and nobody should question about it. What a communal minded person. Government must bring all the murderers and punish them without any mercy.

Sinhalese will never give independence to Tamils which they got it free of ...........from British.They keep on fighting with Tamils until this country will become an Islamic State in late twenties as said by SLMC founder.
