The Welikada Police said yesterday they were continuing with their investigations into the disappearance of 40-year-old Damitha Sagara Chandrasiri, the editor and scriptwriter of the popular ‘Koombiyo’ teledrama.

They said they had no information as to his whereabouts after he went missing a few months ago and even after the release of his photograph seeking public assistance to locate him.

A friend of his had complained to the Police on October 29 saying Damitha, a resident of Senanayaka Mawatha, Vanniyankulama in Anuradhapura, had been missing from his boarding house in Nawala since October 24.

'Koombiyo' became a super hit in Sri Lanka overnight for its unique script and the captivating roles of the two main actors and its scintillating theme song. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Maybe he was seen as talking too much...needed to swim with the fishes... Stories can be too close to reality, but this is speculation.
