Three people suspected to be supporters of the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) were Sunday arrested with thousands of detonators in Tamil Nadu's Triuchirapalli district, 320 km from Chennai.

According to police, 4,900 ordinary detonators and 430 electric detonators were seized from the three men - Siva, Selvam and Tamizh.

The trio had stayed in Chennai, Tiruchirappalli and Erode without registering themselves as from the island nation, the police said.

The arrests comes four days after a member of LTTE was nabbed by the state police.
