Apr 10, Colombo: Sri Lankan authorities are interrogating an overseas leader of the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorist organization, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) arrested recently when he entered the country.

Sri Lanka's Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) of police is questioning the senior LTTE leader Nathagoopan who was arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport three weeks ago while entering the country after his deportation from Malaysia.

Nathagoopan was reportedly operating as one of the two deputy leaders of the LTTE's overseas operations under the command of Perinbanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyavan.

He was arrested by the Malaysian authorities for using a forged passport and served six months in a Malaysian jail. Malaysian authorities have deported him to Sri Lanka following the end of his sentence, Police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said.

Nathagoopan was in charge of LTTE's media division and has fled the country when the war ended, according to the police spokesman.
