[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 May 2005, 14:43 GMT]
A Tamil youth was arrested “on suspicion” by troops during a search in the general area of Matkeliya junction, Trincomalee Wednesday around 7.55 p.m, the Sri Lanka Army said. Without elaborating the Army claimed unarmed youths tried to attack the soldiers “using some paraphernalia.”

The SLA said Mahendran Govinadan, 19 was arrested “ in the company of another clique of unidentified men has tried to attack the troops returning from duties using some paraphernalia, according to information.”

The youths fled the scene and eluded the troops who stopped them, the SLA said.

“Later, policemen, assisted by troops arrested the particular gang leader and took him to the Police Station for further investigations,” the SLA said, again without elaborating.

Trincomalee Police are said to be conducting investigations.
