Kishore was arrested by the SLA in Vavuniya and handed over to the Counter Subversive Unit of the Police there. He was immediately taken into custody by the TID. Now he is detained in Colombo.

Sources said that he may be produced in the courts on Monday.

Meanwhile, informed sources said this evening that the TID has asked Chelliah Marcandeyar the Chairman of the SLRC Vavuniya Branch to come to Colombo for an inquiry tomorrow May 11 Tuesday.
