Leader of the Frontline Socialist Party, Premakumar Gunarathnam it is learnt is in the custody of a special unit under Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. The head of the Terrorism Investigations Department that had arrested Kumar had said that “he will be taken to Embilipitiya.”
However, sources from the Department say that word “Embilipiti” is a code.
We have not yet received any information about the party’s women’s wing leader Dimuthu Attygalle who has also been arrested.
Security personnel who had arrived at the house next to the one where Kumar was residing in Kiribathgoda at around 4.30 a.m. on Saturday had disconnected the power supply to the house and asked the residents to remain silent.
They had gone to the house where Kumar was residing at around 5.15 a.m. A few minutes later they had left with Kumar.
Meanwhile, Attygalle is missing since Friday night when she had left a meeting that was held in Thalawathugoda at around 8 p.m. to go to her residence in Godagama.
