An official attached to the Financial Division of the LTTE, Mr. Kaidramalai Gopi, was arrested at his house in Kallady while he was visiting his parents.

Mr. Kadiramalai, father of Mr. Gopi, told TamilNet that the shots were fired by Sri Lankan Army soldiers who were outside the house while policemen were taking his son away through the front door.
