The mother of Danuna Tillekaratne, Asoka Tillekaratne, was given bail by the Mount Lavinia Magistrate a short while ago. The Mount Lavinia Magistrate also issued an order preventing Mrs. Tillekaratne from leaving the country.
Mrs. Tillekaratne was earlier arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for further questioning. A statement was recorded from her by the CID yesterday.
Danuna Tillekaratne is the son-in-law of defeated presidential candidate General Sarath Fonseka who is currently under arrest by the military police.
Cash worth 75 million rupees was recovered from several safety lockers belonging to Mrs. Asoka Tillekaratne early this week.
