It is revealed that he had encouraged LTTE cadres to leave the country during the final stage of the humanitarian operation. The CID nabbed him at the Katunayake International Airport when he returned from Bangkok.
It informed the Court that the suspect should be detained for further grilling. Accordingly the Magistrate Rashmi Singappulli permitted the Police to keep him in custody for further inquiries.
