Two suspects connected to the Easter Sunday terror attacks have been arrested, Police Media Spokesman SP Jaliya Senaratne.

Holding a special press conference earlier this evening (02), Senaratne said that these arrests were made based on the investigations carried out along the arrest of the main suspect who had organized the suicide bomb attack Zion Church in Batticaloa.

One of the suspects –a male from Gothatuwa –had allegedly assisted in the coordination of the attack on Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo and transported the suicide bomber to the hotel.

The other suspect is from Mattakkuliya and he had facilitated the suicide bomber who attacked the St. Anthony’s Church in Kochchikade.

With these arrests, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has identified important leads into the investigations on the Easter Sunday attacks.

The Media Spokesman further said that this information will assist further progress in the investigations.

    Bankum or simply hogwash. Arrest those responsible for the release of the terrorists stockpiling the explosives in Puttlam that was used to blow up churches and the hotels and killed over 250 and maimed 500 others, without further delay. They are now threatening the Sinhalese citing their human rights to do as they want. After the elections everything will be hunky dory.

    We have seen the efficiency when they were looking for the bond Ravi for one week. He is now preaching us how to protect ourselves from Corona. They say birds of a feather flock together.
