Apr 17, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police have obtained Interpol Red Notices on 40 suspected LTTE operative, the Police Media Spokesman SSP Ajith Rohan said Thursday.

The spokesman addressing a media briefing at the Headquarters said the Interpol has issued Red Notices to apprehend operatives of LTTE, the Tamil Tiger terrorist organization, operating in foreign countries.

Two of the Red Notices are for LTTE operatives identified as LTTE leader Perinpanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyawan who is believed to be in Oslo and Vinayagam, who is living in France.

Sri Lanka security forces say the LTTE operatives in foreign countries are supporting the former combatants in Sri Lanka to resurrect the vanquished terrorist organization in the island.

SSP Rohana said the Terrorist Investigations Division of the police since 05 March has arrested 65 persons who were allegedly involved in terrorist activities and 19 of them have been released.

The Terrorist Investigation Division has launched an investigation on the people who had links with the three former LTTE leaders who were killed recently during a gun battle with the army. The spokesman said that in addition to the 40 Red Notices by Interpol another 56 non- LTTE operatives have also been flagged.

He said that Indian police in Chennai recently arrested six suspected LTTE members while attempting to give three Sri Lankan youth weapons training. The government is working on extraditing them to face trial in Sri Lanka, the Spokesman added.
