The woman has been operating a boutique dress shop in Mount Lavinia and had issued the cheques after buying dress items from various businessmen.

The Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court had issued an arrest warrant on the suspect woman.

The Police said the CID had also filed a case in the Panadura Magistrate's Court against the woman, over a fraud of Rs. 6.9 million in 2017.

The woman, Dona Sithara Geethani Kaluarachchi, who holds NIC number 687611799V has been residing at No. 06, Uyana Road, Moratuwa and No. 194/31, Thalgahahena Road, Kesbewa.

    If she was well white collered and in connection with politics this sort of a hunt wouldn't have happened in Sri Lanka.
