The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of the Police headquarters today summoned former Senior DIG Lalith Jayasinghe to record a statement in connection with the investigation of the murder of a UNP supporter in Kahawatta on January 5, 2015 during the Presidential election.

Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the SIU was recording a statement from former senior DIG over allegedly withholding evidence in favor of the suspects who were arrested over the shooting.

Former Deputy Minister Premalal Jayasekara alias ‘Choka Malli’, Sabaragamuwa Provincial Councillor Aruna Nilantha and Kahawatta Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Vajira Darshana were arrested in connection with the shooting incident in 2015.

One person was killed and two others were injured when they were shot at while setting up a stage for NDF presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena in January.

Former senior DIG Jayasinghe who was in remanded on charges of allowing a suspect arrested in connection with Vidya’s rape and killing to escape from police custody, was released on bail on September 13 this year. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    This poor man put his life on the line for a better country promised by Sirisena. Two and a half years is the time taken for Sirisena to even initiate an investigation. Not a very trustworthy or a dependable man.

    Investigations take time and the noose will tighten slowly around the necks of the culprits. By the way what they did was not for a "better country" but for a corrupt and uncultured one and murderous too.

    Justice delayed is justice denied. The alleged perpetrators of a crime roam free while the near and dear of the victim suffers. Spare a thought for them.
