Jaffna police arrested a youth in Veala'nai in the islets of Jaffna Friday on instruction from Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Colombo to the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jaffna, in investigations related to the recent suicide attack attempted on Sri Lanka Minister of Agriculture and the General Secretary of the ruling constituent Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Mithiripala Srisena, in Colombo, legal society sources in Jaffna said.

Police produced the youth, Thiyagarasa Suthakaran, 28, whom they arrested at his house in Ward 4, Veala'nai, in Jaffna Court Friday.

Magistrate Vasanthasenan granted permission to the police to detain Suthakaran until 3 November for interrogation.

The magistrate also directed the police to submit the Ministry of Defence Detention Order (DO) of Suthakaran's detention on 3rd November when he is to be produced in Jaffna Court.

Investigations into the cell phone sim card, claimed to have been recovered from the young woman suicide killer, led to the arrest of Suthakaran in Veala'nai.
