A 28- year old Razik Raza who is at present in remand custody over aiding the suspects in the Easter Sunday blasts, admitted he was aware of the experimental bomb blast in 2018, prior to the suicide attacks.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said it was revealed that Razik had supplied the explosives to Zahran Hashim's brother Mohammed Rilvan to experiment. 

Rilvan was injured during the test in 2018. DIG Rohana said the police were unable to disclose more details about the first explosion as Rilvan died in the Sainthamaruthu incident.

He said Razik Raza was arrested by the Kalmunai Police several months ago and is being in prison.

However, the Terrorism Investigation Division requested the court to hand over the suspect to their custody for further interrogation.

Accordingly, the court granted permission and the suspect has been taken into the TID custody under a detention order.

The spokesman said the TID is intending to interrogate the suspect to get more details about the the first incident took place in 2018. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    This is taking so many twists and turns that no one will ever know the truth. Never heard of such along investigation in our history.

    This has to be dragged as actual mastermind behind this attack will be protected until their times comes. Whoever is behind will be punished soon and they cannot escape

    So why there is no public inquiry into what Harin and Manusha said in the Parliament? A Presidential commission should be appointed with Harin and Manusha also being members of the commission.

    Only now Police are piecing together information little by little. Such collection of info and joining loose ends should have commenced from April 2019. in the past CID never worked for or with the media. Everyone one in the past was a Sherlock Holmes. News of an Investigation hardly went out. In present time, its cart before the horse looking for credit and media to blow up.
