A doctor attached to the Pallai hospital now in police custody for allegedly aiding and abetting terrorism and having close links to the Tamil diaspora backing the LTTE has recently told investigators that there is a plot to kill SLPP Presidential candidate and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Suspect Dr. Sivaruben, who was LTTE supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran’s personal doctor, has said that as Tamil diaspora found that it was difficult for former LTTE cadres to do the job, they had engaged underworld figures.

He has revealed that the Tamil diaspora was ready to pay whatever price demanded by the underworld to undertake the contract.

Others on their hit list are EPDP leader Douglas Devananda and former LTTE Eastern Commander and ex-UPFA Minister Karuna Amman, the suspect has revealed.
