The CID arrested the managing director of a garment factory in connection with the handing over of 400 counterfeit 5000-rupee notes to another party -- after the Cinnamon Gardens branch of the HSBC had identified them as counterfeits as they were about to be deposited.

Dulanjalie Jayakody,-daughter of former president Ranasinghe Premadasa, had gone to the bank at about 2.00 pm today to deposit Rs.2 million (comprising 400 counterfeit 5000 rupee notes) which had allegedly been given to her by the suspect businessman, who had earlier borrowed such a sum from her, police said.

The bank had found that they were counterfeit notes and immediately called in the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The Currency Notes Investigations Unit of the CID had questioned Mrs. Jayakody regarding the source of the counterfeit notes and recorded her statement.

She had named the managing director as the source of the notes.

The suspect was a resident of Etulkotte. He is currently in CID custody and undergoing further interrogation. (Supun Dias)

    The Security feature no 1 is wrong. Its not the heraldic lion in the water mark. Its a bird in the actual Rs. 5000 note. I dont know who is correct?

    Don't make judgements without proper information. I am not siding anybody but if that be the case he would have got caught long ago.

    cant be a garment factory, must be a small scale 'kade'

    Does this transaction falls into" Money Laundering "
    Also why SL needs to print Rs.5000.00 notes ?

    It's not fair to say that. She is married to a very wealthy businessman. Also, just because her father would have been born poor what stops the next generation from making money?

    This business would have been going on for a long time, probably as you said, it should be a Currency Printing Factory and not a Garment Factory. This factory should be sealed.

    In this electronic world nothing could be hidden. The name of the depositor was non other than Dulajali Premadasa daughter of former president of Sri lanka.She may belongs to innocent party yet DM readers need to know the real truth behind the incident.

    Sajith donates Rs. 50,000/- to one lakh to various religious worship places, whether this money also printed at this Garment Factory?
