A 21-year-old man was arrested and handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) over an alleged plot to assassinate President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the police said.

The suspect, Hakeem Mohammaddu Rizkan of Valaichchenai, was arrested along with three other suspects on information received by the Police Intelligence Unit on December 2.

The police said that investigations revealed that the suspects, employed at the Free Trade Zone in Katunanayake, had been staying at a lodge in Amandoluwa, where they had discussed the plot to assassinate the President.

However, later three men had been released on police bail on December 3 on the condition that they would assist the police in the investigation.

The main suspect Rizkan was ordered to be handed over to the CID after being produced in the Minuwangoda Magistrate’s Court. (T.K.G. Kapila)

    Because the presidential security has been reduced from 3000 to 2000 officers. By the way, the German Chancellor has maybe 50 security officers.
