An individual named Indika Bandara alias ‘Herbie’ who was an active member of the LTTE has supplied the private jet to organized criminals Harak Kata and Kudu Salindu to fly to Madagascar from Dubai, UAE.

It was reported that Herbie was arrested by the Terrorist Investigation Division and convicted in a court for supplying weapons and explosives to the LTTE to plot assassinations of VIPs.

Nandun Chinthaka alias Harak Kata and Salindu Malshitha alias Kudu Salindu, who are involved in many crimes, were arrested by the immigration officials on March 1 when they arrived in Madagascar from Dubai in a private jet.

After bringing the two arrested suspects to Sri Lanka, they were taken into the custody of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and are being interrogated under a 90-day detention order.

Based on the information revealed during the interrogations, the CID has submitted a report on Kudu Salindu to the Panadura Magistrate’s Court.

Through that report, the CID had been able to reveal information about the jet in which they arrived in Madagascar.

The CID has informed the Panadura Magistrate that Salindu had travelled to Madagascar with a group of friends, including Harak Kata, to perform some religious rites for the child born to his wife who is a foreign national.

In addition, the investigating officers had further informed the court that 645 kg of heroin, three illegal firearms, five AK-47 type firearms and 1,000 bullets sent by Harak Kata had been seized.

Following an inquiry made by the security forces from the Indian Government via Interpol, it has been revealed that the main suspects who operate the drug network have been in contact with the LTTE organization.
