By Walter Jayawardhana

Seevaratnam Pulidevan , the Director of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Peace Secretariat has been arrested by the outfit’s intelligence service headed by the most feared Pottu Amman, the London based Tamil Broadcasting Corporation (TBC) revealed.

“It is well confirmed and Pulidevan is suspected of leaking information to the government,” the TBC head Veeriah Ramraj said.

He said that the LTTE intelligence service suspects that Pulidevan leaked information about the whereabouts of the late political head of the LTTE , Thamil Chelvan for Sri Lanka’s Air Force to kill him by an air attack.

The TBC broadcast said, Pulidevan was accused of providing vital information to government intelligence services regarding the movements and whereabouts of key figures of the LTTE leadership.

The intelligence chief Pottuamman, a convict in Rajiv Gandhi assassination case together with Velupillai Prabhakaran, has been wielding his power in the past to destroy whoever capable of challenging his second position in command of the outfit. He arrested the deputy leader of the outfit, Mahaththaya, and tortured him in a dark dungeon for months before he was killed. Mahaththaya was accused of leaking information about Kittu to the Indian Navy for them to destroy the cargo ship of arms in which kittu was commanding in the Indian Ocean.
