The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has commenced recording evidence for the second time from the staff of Kurunegala Teaching Hospital with regards to the fresh investigation launched against Doctor Shafi Shihabdeen who worked at the hospital's Gynecology and Obstetrician Unit.

A group of police officers headed by an Assistant Superintendent of Police of the CID have arrived at the hospital in order to record evidence.

The CID has begun to record evidence again based on a request made by the mothers who were victimised due to sterilisations performed at the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital from the hospital authorities, the courts and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa against Dr. Shafi Shihabdeen.

New CID Director SSP W Thilakarathna informed the Kurunegala Magistrate’s Court that a new investigation would be launched and action would be taken to record evidence from the plaintiff when the case against Dr. Shafi is taken at the courts.

The Deputy Director of the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital Dr. Chandana Kendangamuwa said that the officials of the CID were currently engaged in the task of recording evidence from doctors and the nursing staff who were said to have worked with Dr. Shafi Shihabdeen.

Subsequently, evidence would be recorded from victimised mothers as well, the sources said.  (Pushpakumara Jayarathna)
