A Police patrol arrested Mr. Yoganathan Thursday evening in Puthur, a high security zone suburb of Batticaloa. He is the brother of ‘Nithi’, an LTTE defector who became a senior military intelligence operative in the east, according to Police. ‘Nithi’ was killed in a suicide bomb attack in Batticaloa town three years ago.
