The Sri Lankan government has said India will decide on action against four Sri Lankan ISIS suspects arrested at Ahmedabad airport last week while authorities here will investigate whether they were involved in terror acts in the island nation.

Colombo: The Sri Lankan government said on Monday that India will decide on the course of action against four Sri Lankan ISIS suspects arrested at the Ahmedabad airport last week while authorities here will investigate whether they were involved in terror acts in the island nation. The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on May 19 arrested four Sri Lankan nationals linked to the banned Islamic State (IS) outfit, who had allegedly come to India to carry out terror activities following instructions from their Pakistan-based handlers. The four had taken an IndiGo flight from Colombo to Chennai on May 19.

Sri Lankan Law Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa told reporters here, “India will deal with them (arrested suspects) according to its law. Sri Lanka will investigate whether they have participated in any terrorist act or assisted any group during their stay here.” Last week, Sri Lankan authorities launched a high-level operation to investigate four Sri Lankans arrested in Gujarat. Sri Lankan police arrested an associate of the four arrested ISIS suspects last Thursday. Police had said that the associate of the suspects is the son of a drug trafficker, who is being questioned.
