[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 June 1998, 23:59 GMT]
An auto-rickshaw driver was arrested by the Counter Subversive Unit (CSU) of the Batticaloa police in Chinna Oorani, 4 km Northwest of Batticaloa, on Thursday around 5:00 a.m, said sources. He was charged with contributing money to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

The sources said further that the driver, Sri, had made a statement to the police on the previous day stating that persons claiming to be LTTE activists were demanding money from him.

However, he told the police that when he had informed the LTTE, they had given him an assurance that they were not responsible. The driver told the Police that the LTTE had attributed it to the work of impostors.

He was then arrested on Thursday and charged with funding the LTTE on an earlier occasion the sources added.
