(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –The Tamil Nadu Q branch police have arrested Sri Lankan drug lord ‘Kimbula Ela Guna’, who had links with the LTTE, from Chennai airport on Sunday night, Times of India reported.
Based on Guna’s confession, the central crime branch arrested four people, including his son Kennedy alias Bumma, from a hideout in the city on Monday.
The police have detained all the five suspects in Chengalpet sub-jail on Monday.
Police said Guna was nabbed after the arrest of his associate Alaga Perumaga Sunil Gamini alias Fonseka from a hideout in Bengaluru in October last year.
The Q branch wing intercepted Guna alias Gunasekaran, 45, while he was about to board a flight to New Delhi.
Inquiries have revealed that Guna was part of the foiled attack on former President Chandrika Kumaratunga in 1999, in which she lost vision in her right eye.
The Tamil Nadu police have reached their counterparts in Sri Lanka and informed them about the arrest of Guna and four others in Chennai.
