An army captain, a soldier and a Buddhist monk were taken into custody for having close links with a top LTTE leader named Ramesh, alias Charles, who was reportedly involved in the recent bomb blasts in Colombo and the suburbs, police said.

A senior police official said that Ramesh, who was arrested along with three other LTTE suspects in the Mattakkuliya area, had revealed the connection with the captain and other two arrested persons, who are all Sinhalese.

It was revealed that these three Sinhalese suspects had been promised seven million rupees by Ramesh if they helped the LTTE to carry out bomb blasts in Colombo and the suburbs.

The arrested monk, who is from Colombo, had reportedly given shelter to LTTErs, who were in Colombo to carry out attacks.
