The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) yesterday informed the Colombo Chief Magistrate that it is looking into the link between former TID DIG Nalaka Silva and musician Amal Perera and to also investigate if there was any dealings between the former DIG and Makandure Madush.

When the case against former DIG Silva and an Indian national, Marceli Thomas, who was arrested over an alleged assassination plot on President Maithripala Sirisena and some other VVIPs, was taken up in court, the CID informed the Magistrate that musician Amal Perera had met former DIG Silva on July 21, 2016.

“When Amal Perera arrived at the former DIG’s office, a police constable who was on duty at the time had asked him the reason for his visit. The former DIG had been furious at being asked such a question and had taken disciplinary action against him,” CID official informed court.

Former DIG Nalaka Silva and Indian national Thomas were further remanded until February 27 by Colombo Chief Magistrate Ranga Dassanayake.

The Magistrate also ordered the CID to provide an update on the investigation being conducted into the claims made by Thomas stating that the court cannot keep him in remand without proper evidence of any wrong-doing.

Earlier, the CID informed court that it had received a report from the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) regarding Thomas.

The CID also informed the court that it had received information regarding a famous drug dealer who had links to several TID officials, explaining that the person in question was currently locked up in the Welikada Remand Prison. (Yoshitha Perera)
