Police investigations have revealed that Inspector Adjumain, who was arrested by the STF last week in Ampara on information provided by an LTTE intelligence operative arrested in Modera, had been providing information to the LTTE on the movements of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and that there was a plan to assassinate the President based on his information.

While Inspector Adjumain was attached to the Maligawatte police, he had been in charge of the police post at Galle Face and carefully studied the movements of the Presidentís entourage and passed on information to the LTTE.

"The LTTE has paid the suspect a monthly stipend of Rs 50,000 for his services and he has had close contact with the LTTE intelligence wing headquartered in Killinochchi and had been providing vital information on the President, Service Chiefs and VIPís to them over the phone," police claimed.

Adjumain is a resident of Akkaraipattu and at the time of his arrest he was attached to the Police Training School in Kalutara.
