Attempted assassination of Defence Secy:

Key suspect arrested in Vavuniya

The Police Intelligence Unit arrested a key suspect who attempted to assassinate Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa at Pittala junction, Colombo in 2006.

Police spokesman SSP Ranjith Gunasekera said Dharmalingam Dharmatharan alias Kili, a key suspect who attempted to assassinate the Defence Secretary was arrested at a school in Vavuniya around 1.00 p.m. on Wednesday.

“Kili had come along with the displaced people from the No Fire Zone seeking protection with the Security Forces,” he added.

“As he is most wanted person, the Police Intelligence Unit of Vavuniya identified him and arrested Kili when he was brought to the school before being sent to an IDP centre.

“He was handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department for further investigation,” SSP Gunasekera told the Daily News. A trishaw laden with explosives attempted to drive into the Defence Secretary’s motorcade and was prevented by his guards on December 01, 2006 at Pittala junction, Kollupitiya. Two guards of the Defence Secretary were killed in the incident.
