The Liberation Tigers Tuesday arrested a Sri Lanka Policeman who had attempted to travel through an area held by them. He was taken into custody at the LTTE's border post at Pullumalai, northwest of Batticaloa near the Amparai district border. A Police officer in Batticaloa said the LTTE had released him to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission in Amparai later in the day.

The officer said the Policeman was traveling in a bus from Batticaloa to Badulla on the A5 road, which is controlled by the Tigers between Chenkalady, 16 km north of Batticaloa, and Pullumalai, a Tamil village near the Amparai district border.

The SLMM handed over the Policeman to the Maha Oya Police station, the officer said.
