The Army Colonel who has been arrested on suspicion for allegedly conspiring to assassinate the President and the members of his family with assistance from the LTTE has been produced before the Courts.
Two more suspects were produced along with the Colonel. The Colombo Chief Magistrate permitted the detention of the suspect for interrogation following submissions made by the CID. A suspect named Ramasamy Prabhakaran who is in the custody has introduced the Army Colonel to LTTE terrorists. Several plans to commit the crimes came to light thereafter.
