Six policemen including an Inspector who came directly under Colombo North DIG Vaas Gunawardena’s office had been asked to appear at the CID office to record statements from them, Police sources said today.
Sources said the DIG was being questioned by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) under detention orders of 72 hours over the abduction and murder of shoe businessman Shyam Huzamdeen and several other cases.
DIG Vaas Gunawardena was arrested on Monday night after he was questioned by the CID throughout the day for more than ten hours. He was summoned for the second time to record a statement over the abduction and the murder of a well-connected multi-millionaire businessman.
In this connection four policemen were arrested by the CID on June 5.(Supun Dias)
The six are going to become famous and very possibly rich.

The assault case on Nipuna Ramanayake by Vass G,his wife and son is yet pending,though 'buried' by the forner attorney general who is now chief justice. Do we need this Chief (of) Injustice?

Why all this Kolaveri? Is it because he is "a well-connected multi-millionaire businessman"? If he was just a 'common man', would there be the same investigations and what not? Point to ponder.
