Five suspects, who are alleged to have maintained connections with the National Thowheed Jamaath (NTJ) and its leader Zahran Hashim, were arrested in Horowpathana today, police said.

Among those arrested were a development officer attached to the Horowpathana Divisional Secretariat, a teacher of a government school in Horowpathana, two teachers of an Arab school in Kiwulekada and a resident of Kebithigollewa.

Police said the suspects had delivered extremist sermons in Anuradhapura and Trincomalee.

It was revealed that these suspects had received funds from the NTJ via one of the main suspects, in the Easter Sunday attacks, who is abroad. (Dayarathna Embogama)
