Colombo, 07 August, ( Sri Lanka confirms that LTTE’s remnant group leader Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP has been arrested, brought to Colombo and now he is ‘vomiting’ to his Sri Lankan interrogators.

A source very close to the Sri Lanka President’s office told Asian Tribune that on Thursday President Mahinda Rajapaksa received a call from the Defence Ministry that KP has been arrested and brought to Colombo.

The source further added that Mahinda Rajapaksa received this call immediately after his prayers at the Temple of Tooth in Kandy, (Dalada Maligawa) appealing to the Deyeo – (God) ‘for strength to unite the country and bring about a sustainable peace in Sri Lanka.’

Though it was reported that KP was arrested in Thailand, (even in the Asian Tribune) the news is being contradicted by many LTTE sources living in the West.

According to “Puthinam,” a pro-LTTE Tamil language news portal, which promoted KP as the new leader of the LTTE, reported that KP was arrested in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in a joint operation conducted by Sri Lankan and Malaysian intelligence officers and not in Thailand.

Puthinam also published a new image of KP, which is completely different from what all the medias so far carried.

According to Puthinam, on Wednesday, KP went to ‘Tune Hotel’ located at the Jalan Tuanku Absdul Rahman, in Kuala Lumpur to meet with the visiting Late B. Nadesan’s brother and son.

Puthunam further revealed that while he was closeted in the hotel room with the visitors, he received a call and he came out of the room to continue his conversation.

“ When KP came out of the room he was apprehended by the Malaysian and Sri Lankan intelligence operatives and packed off to Colombo on Thursday, after holding initial investigation and confirmation that they have netted the right person.

Asian Tribune further learnt that the map of the arrest of KP was ‘sketched out’ by the arrested LTTE leaders, who are in the custody of the Sri Lankan Army and especially by a former LTTE intelligence chief.

In the meantime, Asian Tribune also learns that already RAW, - Research Analysis Wing – the intelligence unit of India is in touch with Sri Lanka regarding KP, as he is wanted in the Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination.

Furthermore it is rumored that Sri Lankan intelligence has initiated a secret move to net a high profile New York based LTTE Lawyer.
