Another person said to be the manager of a travel agency who helped these two Tamil youths to obtain visa and other travel documents go abroad was also arrested and is being subjected to interrogation by the Police Intelligence Unit.

Police sources further said they recovered photographs of LTTE leader V.Pirapaharan and other LTTE documents from the Tamil youth arrested on Friday when he arrived in Katunayake from Dubai.

Katunayake police added, steps are being taken to hand over these three Tamils to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Police for further inquiry once the preliminary investigation is completed.
