Two Indians were arrested in Nuwara Eliya without a valid visa by the Special Task Force (STF) yesterday (Apr 24) over suspicion of being involved in last Sunday's terror attacks. 

Measures have been taken to produce the suspects before the Nuwara Eliya Police before being  handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

Investigations have revealed that the suspects were operating a rest house without a valid license in the area. The arrest was carried out during a raid by STF officers upon a tip-off.
