Officers of the Police Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) have arrested two suspects in connection with promotion of extremism and Wahabism through social media platforms.   

Police spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said the suspects were identified as 28 and 29-year-old persons from Kattankudy.   


It was revealed that the duo had been deported from Qatar in November last year along with four others.   
He said they had created a WhatsApp group when they were in Qatar and had circulated various ideologies connected to extremism and Wahabism among Sri Lankans, the spokesman said.   


Investigations also disclosed that six suspects were involved in publishing Zahran’s oath-taking of Baiyath and videos and photos of the Easter Sunday attack.   


DIG Rohana said all six persons of the group have been arrested by now.   
They had been brought to TID’s Colombo office and detained under the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).
