TID arrests Akkaraipattu deputy mayor

Sri Lanka's Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) has arrested the deputy mayor of Akkaraipattu Municipal, Abdul Gaffoor Asmy on January 16. 

Asmy was reportedly arrested for failing to comply with a TID arrest warrant. 

Unverified reports suggest the TID was investigating him following an anonymous letter they received linking him to Islamic State and over his failure to repay debts.
