Muththusami Ilankoowan alias Sami is possibly the highest ever LTTE operative arrested in Colombo, one day before yesterday by a special team of policemen senior officials said.
Sri Lankan born Tamil who holds a Singaporean passport was arrested at a lodge in Wolfendhal Street in Pettah on Monday afternoon by cops clad in civvies who came in a white van. His arrest was earlier reported by the local media that he was being abducted by unknown persons, but a police spokesperson later admitted that he is under arrest by the police.
Investigators found credible evidence to prove his connection with the LTTE, including the photos taken by the suspect with several Tiger leaders including the LTTE supremo.
He has had close links with Kumaran Pathmanathan alais KP, head of LTTE's International Supply Unit and coordinate local supplies to the LTTE. He also has his own shipping company, which the investigators suspect was involved with many cross boarder arms transportation.
