Two men who posed as close confidants of Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa were taken into custody in Galkiriyagama for promising villagers in Uduruwa South that they will be given jobs in state banks and the customs department. They had also asked them for money.

The two men had come to the area in a vehicle which had posters and stickers of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Minister Basil Rajapaksa and Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

They had been staying at a house in the area by claiming that they are in the area to make arrangements for the upcoming ‘Deyata Kirula’ exhibition which is to be held in Anuradhapura.

Police said that they failed to produce documents to prove their claim. They even claimed that they are from the Ministry of Economic Development.

They were produced before the Kekirawa Magistrate by the Galkiriyagama police and remanded.

According to the police individuals claiming to be close relatives or confidants of powerful ministers in the government and also posing as members of the Presidential Security Division (PSD) are engaged in illegal activities by cheating the public. (Supun Dias)
