He was arrested after the police got a tip off that a resident of Vavuniya is searching for detonators. He was eventually arrested after which he revealed the claymore bomb that was to be used for this purpose.

The Tiger suspect had been in a welfare center after the defeat of the Tigers and has managed to escape when he was taken to Vavuniya hospital for treatment. He is a bomb expert and had been involved in many bomb explosions in Colombo and has also worked as the deputy of Colombo Tiger intelligence chief Ratnam Master and had been running a bomb depot in a three story house in Modera.
