[TamilNet, Saturday, 20 June 2009, 15:17 GMT]
Three Tamil youths arrested by the Western Province Intelligence Unit of the Sri Lanka Police last week are now detained in the Borella Police Station under a detention order by the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry. Two of them were arrested on a tip off in a house located along Ayurvedic Junction in Borella on June 15 and June 16.

The first youth arrested on June 15 was identified as Sivarajah Subakrishnan, a resident of Trincomalee. Following preliminary inquiry, another suspect identified as Thavarajasingham Subash of Batticaloa was arrested the next day at the same location, Police Spokesman Ranjit Gunasekara told media Friday.

The third suspect was taken into custody on Wednesday near Kurumankerni Vigneswara Vidiyalayam in Vaalaichchenai on information received from other two suspects.

All three suspects were gathering information, planning, assisting and abetting a suicide mission to assassinate the President,” SSP Gunasekara said.
