At the time of 'arrest' by the SLA soldiers Friday Mr. Thirukeswaran was undergoing a driving course.

A person brought by the SLA soldiers in their vehicle was said to be locating a mysterious object in the land belonging to Thavaseelan and, thereafter, Thavaseelan was taken to Karadiyaanaa'ru police station and from there to Eraa’voor police station, according to his relatives.

The matter has been brought to the notice of the district parliamentarians and provincial councillors by the youths' relatives.
