Two men have been arrested from a house in "Bis Buru" area in Maafannu ward, which is where murdered blogger Yameen Rasheed had lived.
The police media officer said they are conducting an operation in the area, but did not give any details.
The area was cordoned off before the operation.
While it has been a week since his death, Rasheed’s family has said that the police informed them they have not identified the suspects of the brutal murder.
The 29-year-old was found stabbed multiple times at the stairwell of his apartment on April 23, and died shortly after being taken to hospital.
