Tamil Nadu Q branch officers said they have busted a sleeper cell of former LTTE cadres with the arrest of two men in a Mogappair guest house.


One of those nabbed, Sivaneswaran, alias Nesan hails from Jaffna and had joined the LTTE and was tasked with checking the past history of young recruits.


The arrested duo was produced before a magistrates court in Tambaram that remanded them in judicial custody in Puzhal prison.


They had even done a trial run detonating a bomb in a remote place near Panturi in August and recorded it on a laptop.
