Western Provincial Councillor S. Kuhawardhan was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today for allegedly defrauding cheques amounting to Rs. 70 million, CID sources said.

He was arrested following interrogation by the Commercial Crime Investigation Unit of the CID.

A businessman had lodged a complaint with the CID’s Commercial Crime Investigation Unit saying that the councillor had defrauded Rs. 70 million by giving dud cheques for the purchase of three housing complexes.

S. Kuhawardhan, who is a member of the Democratic Peoples’ Front (DPF), was engaged in a business involving building construction.

The suspect is to be produced in the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court tomorrow. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Wonder if his "Assets" were declared when he was elected. If not he should be investigated on amassing such wealth
