Former Northern Provincial Councillor M. K. Shivajilingam has been arrested by the Kopay Police, says Ada Derana reporter.

He was arrested this morning (15) while commemorating the 33rd death anniversary of former LTTE member Thileepan, who died during a hunger strike in 1987.

The police had obtained a restraining order from the Jaffna Court to prevent the commemoration. However, the former parliamentarian had attended the event disregarding the court order.
