Meanwhile, 48 water gel sticks, 55 non-electric detonators and 34 pieces of safety fuses (each was about 14.5ft in length) had been found during a search conducted in the beach area of Erakkandi. The arrested suspect along with the motorcycle and explosives was handed over to the Kuchchaveli Police for legal action. 

Navy operations are underway across the island country of Sri Lanka to nab suspects involved in extremist activities and also to find explosives. 

Several such cases of naval personnel nabbing accused with water gel tubes and non-electric detonators and a safety fuse have been reported.

The Easter Sunday attack across Sri Lanka in churches and hotels have forced the police to launch special searches in order to arrest suspects involved in extremist activities.
