The Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) arrested 20 suspects this morning who were part of an extortion racket at the newly built fishing complex in Peliyagoda, Colombo Range DIG Anura Senanayake said.
The breakthrough about the extortion racket came to the fold when the Fisheries Ministry informed the Defence Secretary about the racket.
The suspects were running the extortion racket by demanding cash within the range of Rs.25 to Rs.500 from each fish dealer. Among the arrested is a Vice Chairman of an Urban Council in the area.

The raid to arrest the suspects was carried out under the directions of Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, DIG Senanayake said.
The investigations have been handed over to the Colombo Range from the Peliyagoda Special Crimes Division.  (Supun Dias)

    Unless Gota intervenes, this is not possible due to powerful politico involvement in such rackets.
