[TamilNet, Monday, 20 April 2009, 14:04 GMT]
Thirukkoayil police arrested Sunday a Tamil policeman attached to Thirukkoayil police and a Tamil trader in Thurukkoayil, in Ampaa’rai district, on suspicion of helping Liberation Tigers, the police said. The arrested policeman had earlier taken into custody some paramilitary men who had tried to extort money form the arrested Tamil trader along with Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers, residents of Thirukkoayil said.

The policeman arrested is Nagarasa Nagaratnam and the trader taken into custody is Kanapathipillai Sureshkumar.

Thirukkoayil police handed both arrestees over to Akkaraipattu police for further interrogation

Navaratnam and Sureshkumar have been arrested in an act of revenge for arresting the paramilitary men and because they are Tamils, Thirukkoayil residents further said.
