Niaz is from Natpittimunai village in Amparai district.

Muslim youths from Sorikalmunai who arrested Sivakumar have been combing the region for the last five days looking for Niaz, sources said.

Police sources said that Niaz has been involved in cattle theft and dealing with stolen cattle for several years.

Residents in Sorikalmunai and Savalakadai say that tension between the Muslim and Tamil communities escalating and villagers fear of violence breaking out.
