Sri Lankan Police Detain 'Handler' of 4 ISIS Terrorists Nabbed in Gujarat

In a significant development, the Sri Lanka Police confirmed the apprehension of Osman Pushparaja Gerard, a 46-year-old terror suspect, by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Colombo, as relayed by the Sri Lanka Police Media Spokesman.

This arrest follows the capture of four Sri Lankan ISIS terrorists in Gujarat's Ahmedabad, prompting Sri Lankan authorities to intensify their investigative efforts. Notably, Osman Pushparaja Gerard is believed to have served as a handler for the detained individuals.

The Sri Lankan police, in collaboration with the CID, the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID), and military intelligence services, launched a thorough probe into the matter. The pursuit of Osman, designated as the coordinator of the four ISIS suspects, led authorities to offer a reward of Sri Lankan rupees two million for any relevant information leading to his capture.

Thus far, Sri Lankan law enforcement has apprehended six suspects, including Osman, who is directly linked to the detained individuals in India. Among the detainees are individuals involved in various activities ranging from logistical support to financial transactions for the terrorist outfit.

Furthermore, the background of the apprehended suspects sheds light on their criminal history and connections to illicit activities. Notably, Mohammed Nusrat and Mohammed Nafran, among others, have a history of involvement in criminal enterprises, including drug-related offenses and illicit trading activities.

The arrest of these individuals underscores the transnational nature of terrorist activities and the imperative of robust international cooperation in combating terrorism. Sri Lankan authorities continue to collaborate closely with their counterparts in India to address the threat posed by extremist elements operating across borders.

The apprehension of Osman and his associates marks a significant milestone in Sri Lanka's ongoing efforts to counter terrorism and uphold national security. However, authorities remain vigilant in their pursuit of individuals involved in terrorist activities, underscoring their unwavering commitment to safeguarding public safety and thwarting threats posed by extremist groups.

The investigation into the matter remains ongoing, with authorities diligently working to gather intelligence and gather evidence to ensure the prosecution of those responsible for facilitating terrorist activities.
