A sergeant attached to the Intelligence Unit of the Sri Lanka Army has been arrested in connection to the murder of Lasantha Wickrematunge.

CID sources claim that the suspect who resembles one of the two sketches drawn to find Wickrematunga murderers was arrested when he arrived to provide a statement about the incident.

Police sources claim that the seized sergeant will be produced before an identification parade.

The veteran journalist Wickrematunge, the founder Editor of The Sunday Leader, was assassinated on January 8, 2009 by four assailants who stopped him on his way to his office and opened fire at him.
