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.
