The TID informed that Karupaiah Rajendran had close connections with Inshaf Ibrahim Ahamed who had blown himself up at the Shangri-La Hotel in Colombo.

The TID further stated that Karupaiah Rajendran had obtained Rs.200,000 from Inshaf Ibrahim as a loan.

The TID also stated that they would take action against Karupiah Rajendran under Section 7(2) of Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Meanwhile, the suspect Karupiah Rajendran was ordered to be further remanded till June 24. The 9th suspect was in remand since he was unable to fulfill his bail conditions.
