A suspect, an ex-LTTE member who had fled while transporting LTTE material in a three-wheeler in Oddusuddan, had been arrested last night at Mankulam, the Police said.

Last week, the Police recovered a uniform, a flag, a claymore mine and several military types of equipment belonging to the LTTE, while they were being transported in a three-wheeler at the Peraru Junction Oddusuddan, Mullaithivu.

Two individuals including the driver of the three-wheeler were arrested at that time, while the third escaped.

The Police, STF and Army launched search operation to arrest the escaped suspect.

The Police said the suspect, 41-year old Vellasami, a resident of Kilinochchi, had lost his left hand during the war and believed that he was a former member of the LTTE bomb squad.

The suspect was handed over to the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) following the arrest.(Darshana Sanjeewa and Romesh Madushanka)

    What “rights” are you people missing? Does the law state that tamils are lesser than others?

    Vellasami is not a Sri Lankan Tamil Name,it is a typical Indian Tamil Name. Thousands of Indian Tamils were brought to work in Wanni from the Tea estates in theUp Counntry in the 60s. They were by nature anti social and made Wanni their home. It was a big mistake to move them into Wanni.

    After giving Amnesty n rehabilitation, IF these guys want to to be involved in the same thing, they will ALWAYS be a menace, instead of arresting him they could have taken him to show hidden weapons,1 bullet would of been the cost. What a shame !
