Dehiwala bomber - Suspicion if he is a friend of an intelligence officer

Information has surfaced that the Dehiwala suicide bomber belonging to te Saharan group known as Jamaldeen had studied Arabic together with an SI attached to the Police Q branch investigating Muslim extremists.

It has been revealed that this SI had visited the home of Saharan’s wife in Kurunegala several days prior to the attacks.

Information obtained had revealed that the two women who had died in the suicide explosion at a house in Sainthamarudu, Kattankudy on April 26th had been at the Kurunegala house when the SI had visited.

While the State Intelligence Q branch had uncovered information that Saharan was involved with the National Thawheed Jamaád Organisation and engaged in extremist activities, it had also been revealed that Jamaldeen was also involved with this extremist group.

Therefore, the intelligence officers say that it is highly suspicious that the intelligence officer involved in the investigations was unaware of his batch mate’s involvement.
