Two suspects, alleged to be LTTE cadres, were arrested by the Special Task Force (STF) and the police in Kalmunai and Kalawanchikudi for engaging in anti-state activities and promoting the now defunct LTTE.

Police Media Spokesman SP Preshantha Jayakody said that two mobile phones containing a video clip of the LTTE were in the possession of the suspects at the time of the arrest.

During investigations it had been reveled that the suspects were residents of Pandirippu and Eruwel in the north.

The suspects were taken into custody following vital information gathered from the area.

It has been reveled that the suspects had been engaged in anti state activities since the end of the war last year.

The STF and the Kalawanchikudi police are conducting further investigations. (Daily Mirror online)

    Had this been done 30 plus years ago, nipped in the bud, today we would not be facing this terrible mess and 100,000 lives would not have been lost in vain not forgetting those maimed. Thumbs up to our valiant forces & hope they continue to always be alert.

    They never will learn or rehabilitate, but continue to sow seeds of discontentment and hatred. They need to be dealt with in a way that other instigators will think twice. Our people have been through a lot. Should we allow these extremists to start steamrolling our country again ?
