The ‘Junior Vigadan’ Journalist, who was arrested yesterday while videoing the High Security Zone in Jaffna is currently being questioned by the Terrorist Investigations Department, Police said.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana speaking to Daily Mirror Online said the suspect had not been handed over to the Department of Immigration and Emigration yet.

A Department official said the police were yet to notify them about the arrest but had only heard of it through the media.

Meanwhile the Press Trust of India reported that political parties in Tamil Nadu and journalist associations on Friday sought Centre's intervention for release of an Indian national arrested in Sri Lanka.

MDMK leader Vaiko appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to ensure the safe return of the man hailing from Tamil Nadu, arrested on Thursday.

In a letter to Singh, Vaiko identified the arrested person as Tamil Prabhakaran and said he had gone there on a tourist visa on December 25.

He said Prabhakaran had accompanied Sri Lankan Tamil MP Sritharan and Pasupathi Pillai, elected Member of the northern provincial council, who visited Ponnavili, a Tamil village.

"Then they have proceeded to Valaipadu village. When they were on discussion with Rev. Father of St. Antony Church, theywere surrounded by the Sri Lankan Army at 1.30 PM and taken to custody," he said.

While Sritharan and Pillai were released in the evening, Prabhakaran was detained, he said.
