A suspect identified as Buhari Mohammed Rafik was arrested by the Slave Island Police yesterday in connection with the Easter Sunday bomb attacks, Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said today.

He said cash worth more than Rs.8 million and gold weighing 778 grams were found in his possession during the arrest while the Kattandudy Police had arrested another suspect said to be closely connected to the suicide bomber Mohamed Zahran Hashim.

SP Gunasekara said the suspect had carried out financial transactions with Zahran and found to have participated in several training sessions conducted by the terrorist group led by him.

He said the Wellampitiya Police officers were being investigated as to how the nine suspects arrested at the Wellampitiya copper factory came to be released on bail.

Meanwhile, SP Gunasekara said police unearthed a cache of explosives at the Kattankudy Beach today. They believe the explosives might have been buried by the suicide bombers who had blasted themselves at Sainthamaruthu.  (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    At the Wellampitiya copper factory all goods have been taken away. So where is the security and what security are you boasting about and under who's orders were these item released. As public we have the right to information.

    Every member of this group needs to be arrested and tried in a court of law and sentenced to life in prison for the dastardly act they all participated on innocent human beings. Only then the world will realize that the S.L government means business in ridding the country of terrorism.
