A Sri Lankan national, suspected to having links with terrorist outfit Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam (LTTE), was arrested from his hideout in neighbouring Navi Mumbai by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).

The accused Rajan Silithuriya alias Rajan alias Kartik, hailing from Sri Lanka, was picked up from his hideout in Koparkhairane area of Navi Mumbai on Tuesday night. He had been shifting places in the Mumbai suburbs since the past four years, the ATS said.

According to the ATS, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on April 13, 2007 had seized three kgs of heroin at the Chennai International airport.

The concerned special court had declared Silithuriya as a wanted accused in the case and had also issued a non-bailable warrant against him.

The ATS had received specific information that Silithuriya was staying in Navi Mumbai following which he was arrested.

"We are probing if Silithuriya has any links with LTTE or any other group in Mumbai. Preliminary probe revealed the accused had stayed in Matunga, Chembur and Navi Mumbai areas since past four years," said additional director general (ATS) Rakesh Maria.

The Chennai NCB would seek his remand from the ATS soon, the ATS officials said adding further probe was on.
