The public has been requested to provide any credible information regarding the suspects to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) which has been questioning several others, arrested over the last four days.
Sri Lanka Police has said over 70 people have been arrested since Easter Sunday, 33 of them are being held at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), four at the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) and the rest are being held at various police stations.
Currently, Sri Lanka is receiving police assistance from at least six countries including the UK’s Scotland Yard, the FBI, New Zealand Police, Australian Federal Police, Danish Police, Dutch Police, and INTERPOL.
Earlier on Thursday, Sri Lanka Police discovered 200 detonators hidden in a canal in Hawaeliya, Nuwara Eliya, while three other people were taken into custody for possessing 21 homemade grenades and six swords.
