Police Headquarters said today that some of the details of the investigation into the disappearance of Prageeth Eknaligoda had been released to the public but the rest could not be revealed because the investigations were continuing.

It denied that Police Chief N.K. Illangakoon was holding back some of the information under pressure from some individuals.

Prageeth's wife Sandaya Eknaligoda had at a news conference claimed that information regarding the disappearance of her husband had not been released to the public.

Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the police had handed over all the files connected to the disappearance to the CID under instructions from the police chief to carry out the investigations without fear or favour.

"There has been no intimidation at all," he said. The CID was continuing the investigation successfully, he added.

“We can’t reveal all the information we have. We have already arrested two individuals and we will provide more information as and when necessary. We will update the media and the family when we have made further progress while making sure that the information would not hamper further investigations,” ASP Gunasekara said. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Further investigation , pressure and No pressure largely depends on the election results

    So the investigations only start in 2015? What was teh police doing before MS-RW came?

    Knowing the past misinformation on Prageeth and how long this disappearance had been kept under wraps by the police, it will take a lot of convincing to believe that there is no interference from the powers.

    Thats it - go go go - but play to a successful finish soon.

    The very fact that years have gone by and still the culprits to this kidnapping and possibly murder have not been brought to book smells fishy!!!

    I wonder why police chief was quite all these days. All these probes are coming out and all these things have happen during his time.

    Following orders from high-ups

    C.K.Lankaputhra Monday, 17 August 2015 05:35 AM

    Ask MR or Gota They were the police chiefs then.

    Premalal Monday, 17 August 2015 06:05 AM

    If the police, without any external pressure take 4 years to make the first arrests in a crime, what more could you say about the police force?

    Sincere Monday, 17 August 2015 08:47 AM

    We will take that with a pinch of salt!

    Fassey Monday, 17 August 2015 08:47 AM

    Expecting wonders and putting the full blame on police is unfair. We know the police was suppressed.
