CID to inspect Giritale Army Camp

5 October 2015 03:10 pm - 8     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

The CID has said as part of its ongoing investigations into the fate that had befallen journalist Pragneeth Eknaligoda who had gone missing, it would inspect the Giritale Army Intelligence Corps Camp where he was alleged to have been detained.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the 11 suspects currently detained by the CID would be taken to the military facility between October 3 and 13 to facilitate the investigations.

He said the Attorney General’s advice would be sought on how to proceed with the investigations and the prosecution.

The Homagama Magistrate granted leave to the CID on September 28 to photograph the camp belonging to the Giritale Army Intelligence Corps and to examine the books and documents maintained by the camp authorities.

The CID informed Court that the investigations were launched on a complaint made by Mr. Ekneligoda’s wife Sandya. During the ongoing investigations two lieutenant colonels and several intelligence officers had been arrested and were being interrogated.

The detectives sought a court order to obtain these records as they were needed for their investigations.

Permission had been granted to the CID to visit the camp and conduct the necessary investigations. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
