Former DIG Nalaka de Silva, who is in remand custody in connection with the alleged plot to assassinate several VIPs, has been provided with special protection, a Prisons Department official said.

He said the DIG was being detained in a special cell at the Welikada Prison and that additional security personnel from the prison have also been deployed for his security.

The CID arrested the DIG last Thursday and remanded till November 7 by Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    The DIG was used as a skate goat for their benefit he had to suffer. Where's proof of a conspiracy? CID is very good at cooking up stories and sending people in.

    something tells me this is all a set up. I think it is a stage managed drama that is getting enacted for us to see.

    This drama story is like One shot who was accused of having an affair with a lady and playing out her money. The other drama was MTV guy on an election day having unlicensed fire arm and a women.
