June 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka's state intelligence had exposed a plot to assassinate the Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, a local Sinhala newspaper reported.

According to a report in the Sunday Rivira newspaper, a Tamil Tiger intelligence leader who is hiding in Malaysia had hatched the plot to assassinate the Defense Secretary with the support of Sri Lankan underworld and Tamil Diaspora.

The suspected Tamil Tiger cadre had fled to Malaysia through Singapore after the end of war. He had tried to get the support of an extremist in the underworld to carry out the contract. The Tamil Tiger cadre is a German passport holder.

The report further said that foreign intelligence agents are also suspected to be behind the assassination plot.

Sri Lanka, recently with the support of the Malaysian authorities, brought home several Sri Lankan Tamil Tiger strongmen who were hiding in Malaysia.
