A Sri Lankan suspect alleged to have been involved in the Easter Sunday attacks here has been taken into custody in Myanmar.

This 39 year old suspect named Abdul Salam Irshad Mohammed had been taken into custody yesterday evening when he arrived at the Yangon Immigration and Emigration office to obtain an extension of his visa.

The Myanmar Tourist Police had informed all hotels and holiday resorts on Wednesday in order to take this individual into custody.

It had not been reported that the suspect who had gone to Myanmar in January 2018 on a tourist visa had not left the country.

The Myanmar media said that based on information given by the Sri Lankan government, the arrest had been made by authorities of that country but had not revealed how the suspect was involved in the Easter Sunday attacks.

The Irawaddi newspaper of Myanmar had said that the Special Branch of the Myanmar Police was carrying out an investigation on the suspect’s connections to the Easter Sunday attacks.

The Tourist Police of that country said that Abdul Salam Irshad Mohammed had been staying in the country for one year and two months subsequent to his visa expiring.

The Myanmar newspaper had also mentioned that there is a likelihood of foreign terrorists, followers of I.S. launching attacks in that country.
