One of the eight suspects wanted in connection to the explosion aboard the presidential speedboat late September was arrested in Dehiwala, Nadimala area.

Maldivian national Ahmed Ashraf (18 year-old), known by his social media nickname of Shumba Gong, is a self-avowed supporter of the embattled vice president Ahmed Adheeb.

 “On the request from the Maldivian Authorities, Sri Lankan Immigration and investigation team arrested the Maldivian and sent him back in a flight yesterday after cancelling his visa,” Lakshan Zoysa, a spokesman for the immigration office, told Hiru Gossip.

President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom and First Lady Fathimath Ibrahim were travelling to Male from the airport on September 28 when the explosion took place. They had returned home that morning after concluding their visit to Saudi Arabia to perform the annual hajj pilgrimage.

Maldivian Police Media Spokesperson has thanked Sri Lankan authorities in this regard.
