Sun, Apr 13, 2014, 07:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 13, Colombo: The Sri Lankan law enforcement authorities will seek Interpol's assistance to nab the LTTE leaders operating from foreign countries to revive the defunct terrorist outfit in the island, police media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohan has said.

Investigations have revealed that the three LTTE operatives, who were recently killed in a clash with the army in the North, were functioning under the instructions of Europe-based LTTE leaders Nediyawan and Vinayagam who were preparing the ground for another armed struggle.

Police media spokesman has said that an Interpol red notice has already been issued to arrest Vinayagam and an arrest warrant would also be obtained from courts for Nediyawan.

The government on April 01 banned the LTTE and 15 other Tamil diaspora groups that are alleged of having terror links and involved in reviving the terrorist movement in the country.
