Three Tamil civilians were taken into custody in a joint cordon and search operation conducted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police in Katugastota in Kandy district Wednesday following the explosion of a bomb hidden under a bridge along Kandy-Matale rail track Tuesday night around 11:00 p.m., sources in Colombo said.
The suspects are being detained in Katugastota police and interrogated by the Terrorist Intelligence Division (TID).
Failure to prove their identity and to provide satisfactory reason for their stay in the location caused suspicion and led to their arrests, police sources said.
