Virtusa employee arrested over terror links

Sri Lankan police on Friday said they had detained an employee of IT services company Virtusa Corp in Colombo in link with Easter Sunday attacks.

The Virtusa employee was detained on April 27th, police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera told reporters, adding the action was taken “as part of the ongoing inquiries” into the attacks.

A spokeswoman for the Massachusetts-headquartered company established the capture, but did not say why the employee was detained.

Authorities had led a search at Virtusa’s Colombo office this week, three sources familiar with the matter told reporters. The sources did not want to be recognized as they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Sri Lanka has arrested masses of suspects after several suicide bombings on Easter Sunday directed churches and hotels. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, following which security was stepped up across the country.
