London: The Malaysian police have arrested three Sri Lankans accused of trying to revive the Tamil Tiger rebel group.
The three are accused of raising funds and spreading propaganda for the group.
According to the BBC, a police spokesman said the suspects were senior operatives and had registered with the UN as refugees to ‘avoid suspicion’.
Authorities said the three suspects had lived in Malaysia without valid visas for years.
An official said the people have been trying to revive the group using their contacts in Europe and other countries.
Malaysia was now planning to deport them and was searching for more suspects.
The arrest follows the killing in April of three men by the military in northern Sri Lanka
