Mr.Kanagaretnam and his family were caught in the ‘no-fire zone ‘in the Vanni region. Later he and his family moved to Omanthai where he stayed in an internment camp allocated for the IDPs.

On receipt of information a special team of the CID rushed to Omanthai and brought Mr.Kanagaretnam to Colombo. His family is still being kept in the Omanthai internment camp, sources said.

Earlier the MP was held incommunicado.
