Two more soldiers had been arrested by the CID yesterday morning in connection with the abduction and assault on journalist Keith Noyahr in 2008, the Police said.  

The Police said the suspects were produced before Mt. Lavinia Magistrate.   Earlier, the CID arrested three Army personnel including a Major over the incident. They were remanded until February 23. Noyahr was abducted just days after he wrote an article in the ‘Military Matters’ Column published on May 11, 2008 in The Nation newspaper titled An Army is not its Commander’s private fiefdom.
