The Police are yet to determine the fate and whereabouts of some 172 vehicles of the 752 fleet of the presidential secretariat, SSP Ajith Rohana said today.


The new Presidential Secretary had informed the Police Chief to launch investigations to ascertain the number of vehicles of the secretariat and to find if the vehicles had been misused.


“The secretariat had received 379 vehicles by Sunday but 172 more vehicles have not been returned yet. Jeeps, cabs and cars were among the fleet of the Secretariat and some of these had been used by special advisors, the clergy and other individuals and also by state institutions,” SSP Rohana said.


He said a special CID team was probing the fate of the vehicles to determine if they have been misused.  Using a state vehicle without permission and enjoying attached privileges such as fuel allowances was a punishable offence under the law, the SSP said.   


He said the police would carry out raids to locate the vehicle if they had to. (Sanath Desmond)
