[TamilNet, Sunday, 16 November 2008, 19:02 GMT]
Mr.A.R. V.Loshan, veteran Tamil radio journalist and announcer, was arrested Saturday early morning around 1:30 a.m. by the Terrorism Intelligence Division (TID) of the Sri Lanka Police from his residence located in Wellawatte, Colombo and was taken to the Bambalapitya Police station. The police officers who took him into custody had told his relatives in writing that Mr.Loshan was arrested on reports implicating him with terrorist activities and aiding terrorists, media sources reported.

Mr.Loshan is currently the manager of a private radio station "Vetti F.M." and a contributing journalist.

Earlier he worked in the MTV Sakthi radio and later in the Sooriyan FM.

Before arresting Loshan, the police went to the house of Mr.Santhuru, another announcer of the Vetti FM, and subjected him to interrogation.

Santhuru was not arrested, his relatives said.
