89 arrested in Sri Lanka over Easter bombings


The suspects are currently under the custody of the Criminal Investigations Department and the Terrorism Investigations Department.

Police Spokesperson, SP Ruwan Gunasekara, said that search operations were ongoing across the country to hunt for more suspects, who would be linked to the terror attacks but assured that most of those involved had now been arrested.

Hundreds of Sri Lankans on Tuesday visited the grave sites of the terror victims to pay tribute as the nation marked one month since the suicide attacks which targeted three luxury hotels and three churches.

Sri Lanka’s Army Commander Mahesh Senanayake, in a special statement on Sunday, urged people to return to normalcy and to send children back to school, assuring that all precautionary security measures had been put in place.

Senanayake said that search operations and investigations were ongoing and those operations were “effectively advancing now with a marked progress as at now.”
