Person sending false SMS under detention

[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 July 2010, 17:53 GMT]
Sri Lankan Defence Ministry Thursday issued detention order to detain a manager of a mercantile firm for allegedly initiating a false SMS message claiming Black Tigers were to attack Anuradhapura on Poson Day.

The police said that the suspect had asked one of his friends to send the message to his wife, who was planning to visit A’pura on a pilgrimage in order to discourage her from going there.

However the friend had sent the SMS message to several others and one of the recipients had informed the police.

Investigations are currently being carried out to ascertain if either of the men had links with the LTTE.
