The North-based ‘Awa’ group leader and five other members were arrested by the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) in Colombo and Jaffna.

Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said gang leader Sathayavel Nathan alias Nisha Victor, Raj Kumar Jey Kumar alias Vinod, Kulendran Manojith alias Manoj and Shiwa Suddhaniam Pool were arrested in Fort and Mattakuliya on Sunday night while two other members, Sri Kanthan Kukadas and Arjunam Prasanna were arrested in Jaffna

He said Nathan was the main suspect in the assault on the two police constables in Kopay.

SP Gunasekara said the police had also recovered two swords which were in their possession. Those arrested were found to be residents of Jaffna, Kokuvil and Inuvil.

He said the TID was conducting further investigations under the direction of the IGP Pujith Jayasundara. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
