An Indian national has been arrested in Sri Lanka on charges of filming a military installation in Kilinochchi, the former LTTE stronghold, police said on Thursday.
“An Indian national was arrested in Kilinochchi yesterday. He had videotaped a military camp, road, war devastation of buildings,” police spokesman Ajith Rohana said.
Rohana said the 24-year-old Tamil Nadu resident had arrived in Lanka on a tourist visa. “As he had violated the visa rules, he was handed over to the immigration authorities,” he added.
Kilinochchi was the administrative centre of the Tamil Tigers until January 2009, when Sri Lankan forces recaptured the city.
