A suspect, who had been impersonating as a medical officer and had defrauded around Rs 18.1 million from several local banks, had been taken into custody in Udugampola, Gampaha by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) yesterday.

Police said the suspect had obtained loans from banks by subterfuge.

The suspect was identified as Geeganage Sanath Gamini Weerasooriya (56), a resident of Bandiyamulla, Gampaha.

The CID officers had recovered four fake identity cards, two driving licenses and eleven passports with different names that were in the possession of the suspect.

Police said that the suspect had been operating this scam mainly among banks in Anuradhapura.

He was to be produced in the Anuradhapura Magistrate’s Court today.
The CID is continuing with its investigations. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)
