A person who had allegedly swindled millions of rupees by promising attractive interests for unsuspecting depositors, was arrested in Dompe. Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said preliminary investigations had revealed that the suspect had accepted money from people in the area amounting to more that Rs.57 million. It was also revealed that a woman from the area had made a single deposit of Rs. 30 million.
Depositors who had become suspicious when they were not paid the assured monthly interests ranging from 10 to 12% had lodged complaints with the police.
Dompe police are recording statements from the victims. (Sanath Desmond)

The world is no lack of idiots and if there was one person or a path to supersede these ignorance it was none other than the Lord Buddha and the practice of the disciples of the Lord Buddha. This world is haven to rogues.

There are none so blind as those who will not see. Are these people living in caves? Have they not heard of golden key, sakwithi and others who had swindled people of millions? Makes one wonder if we should sympathize or not.

No one should be allowed to accept deposits without getting registerd withwit CB. This culprit should be given the maximum punishment as a lesson for other culprits who are not exposed yet.

The Central Bank in no way could be found fault. However the culprit should be given the maximum sentence.
