Police are checking out more than 600,000 telephone calls in an effort to trace the suspects involved in the attack on Judicial Service Commission (JSC) Secretary Manjula Tillekaratne, the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) informed Court yesterday.

The case was taken up for hearing by Mount Lavinia Chief Magistrate Nirosha Fernando.

Filing a report on the attack and the theft of the JSC Secretary’s mobile phone worth Rs.40,000 CCD ASP Dharmadasa Pathirana said the investigations were being conducted under the personnel supervision of the Police Chief.

He said Mr. Tillekaratne had told police that he had not received any death threats earlier.  

ASP Pathirana said investigations conducted on information received after releasing the sketch of the suspect to the media, was not successful. He said the CCD did not consider the incident as a simple matter and it had begun investigations by checking out the video footage of CCTV cameras set up in the area by private institutions.

Lawyers of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) appearing for the aggrieved party said the investigations should not be limited to a mere investigation report.

Counsel Ranjith Dahanayake urged the police to even offer cash rewards to people who provide information in connection with the incident.
The Chief Magistrate directed the police to submit a report on October 31. (M. Suranjith Perera)

    Without wasting time, just make one telephone call to the Secretary of Defense to trace the culprits who were also involved in other such crimes.

    Did they check the calls originating from Defense and President's secretariat and their Security divisions?

    Minister Thursday, 18 October 2012 06:11 AM

    May be later they will say that they have to increase the number of calls to be scrutinized from 600,000 to 6 million or even more.

    If the government is ready to offer Rs10 or 20 million for the person who can give a reliable information within a time limit, I hope this problem can be solved immediately.So only thing is that govt must not hesitate even to offer 50 million to the informer who has to take a kind of risk which can compensated him for the info. Most certainly the govt has the money where they spend lavishly by the politicos for the elections and festivals etc..Otherwise the time is running out for the govt.

    The usual merry-go-round starting with aspersion cast by the joker Weerawansa, 600,000 telephone calls will take ages thereafter the police will search everywhere in the country except the homes of the perpetrators.
