July 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police have launched investigations into the activities of a suspect who had maintained close links with the defeated Tamil terrorist group of Sri Lanka, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

The suspect, Kathirwel Dayabaran Raj, is believed to be in India. Preliminary investigations have revealed that he had escaped to Rameshwaram on May 4th with his wife and three children.

An Indian magazine meanwhile has reported that Dayabaran Raj was killed by the security forces but the Sri Lanka Police denied the allegation.
