Dec 26, Colombo: The Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) of Sri Lanka police has arrested 45 former members of the Tamil Tiger terrorist organization during search operations in Jaffna, police said today.

The 45 ex-cadres of the defeated terrorist organization, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have been arrested following several search operations carried out in Jaffna the last month, the Police Media Spokesman Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Prishantha Jayakody said.

Police recently arrested four Jaffna University students for engaging in subversive activities when they plan to commemorate the LTTE's Heroes day, a day celebrated by the terrorist organization to pay tribute to their suicide bombers.

Authorities say despite the defeat of the LTTE, some groups in the country with the help of overseas Tamil diaspora are still trying to revive the terrorist group.
