Okay, after the photo of the Zahrân Hâshim with a weapon in front of the well-known flag used among others by #IS and the intelligence memo mentioning him and the group blamed by the #SriLankan gov. for the attacks leaked, I think it rather likely that he was involved.
The guy has been described as pro-#IS, so the remaining question is whether this is directed or inspired. Considering that the information mentioned in the memo seems to have come from India, I believe in an Indian connection to all this.
The first group of Indians who joined #IS belonged to Ansâr al-Tawhîd fî Bilâd al-Hind. Their leader Sultân Amrâr came from the southern Indian state of Karnataka which is bordering Tamil Nadu and has a Tamil minority. His brother Muhammad is likely still around somewhere.
