CID raid SLC

13 June 2011 07:33 pm - 23     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A special team from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) conducted a search inside the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) office in Maitland Crescent yesterday evening to find a missing hard disk which contained valuable information, sources said.
However the CID Investigations Director denied carrying out such a raid. The sources said the CID had searched the World Cup 2011 office at SLC for the hard disk which had apparently contained valuable information on SLC and the World Cup.
The CID had conducted the search following a complaint lodged by SLC Security Advisor Major General Lawrence Fernando. Almost all the computers had been searched by the team, they said.
SLC Interim Committee Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said a complaint was lodged with the police to investigate whether any malpractice had been taken place.
However when contacted, CID Investigations Director SSP Vijaya Amerasinghe denied that a team from his department had conducted a raid to find a missing hard disk.
“We did not conduct any raid as reported. A few people asked me about the search but what we have to say is that we did not conduct any operation or raid”, he said.

    CID please stop beating around the bush and expose the big cats involved in bringing SLC to this pathetic situation

    Sure that hard disk contains info on how much the indians "donated" for us to loose.

    So if CID is denying they did a raid, then some team who pretended to be CID had done it. This is a worse case than the missing hard disk. CID should investigate that before other things.

    Before this, you should conduct a raid at Temple Trees

    Did CID expect missing HD to locate within the premises of SLC ? According CID as it is not a raid or operation, I think SLC hired CID to check stocks.

    none of this info will come to light and it'll go missing and the real culprits of currupt org will get richer with the public's money.(nuriyanta kukullo bara deela wage..)Just like any other investigation a big sham.All who ever held a bat know how currupt it is so why the sudden brain storm.They'll destroy what ever evidence remaining.

    SLC is rotten to the core but no one will find anything amiss there as it is kept clean as a baby's bottom! As for the HD, it is probably in the UK!!!!!

    Authorites have started playing pandu for sometime and now eyewash and perhaps later a good white wash.

    Everything done by the cricket board should be checked.Remove the robbers and put the right people ofcourse after investigating properly.

    Knight Rider Tuesday, 14 June 2011 05:03 AM

    So so idiotic..

    Nimal Tuesday, 14 June 2011 05:12 AM

    This is just to mislead the public who are agitating about the corruption of the SLC.
    So for has the Cid found anything in any of their raids or investigations except in those in the opposition.

    Cynic Tuesday, 14 June 2011 05:23 AM

    CID may come, CID may go, but DS will go on forever.
