The whereabouts of Dhanuna Tillekaratne, the son in law of General Sarath Fonseka is still unknown despite a Rs. one million reward being offered which could lead to his arrest, the police said.

“The police are still searching for him. Despite the cash reward we have not received any information. But we believe he may be in the country,” Police Spokesperson SP Prashantha Jayakody told Daily Mirror online.

The Defence Ministry in a press release issued on Wednesday said that Dhanuna was believed to be in the Kirulapona and Narahenpita vicinity.

The police last week sought public assistance to trace the whereabouts of Dhanuna and offered a Rs.1 million reward to anyone who provided information on his whereabouts.

The Police Department says giving protection to him is a punishable offence under the Penal Code. (Daily Mirror online)

    'Hate and revenge' politics is the strategy of a government locked-up in a multitude of social problems.

    Good luck with this! 'Rs.1 million reward,' OMG whose money are they using?

    Friday, 26 March 2010 03:57 PM

    Why aren't they 'hunting' Cisil Kotalawala & Sakvithi?

    The Sri Lankan Police is good for our politicians' security and for catching "hora" arrack dealers. They are not capable of handling "catch me if you can" type of guys.

    Looks like Dhanuna's 'free' days are numbered.

    Friday, 26 March 2010 07:26 PM

    Is he too, going to be 'on the run,' for the next 30 years?

    Friday, 26 March 2010 07:27 PM

    How can the police catch Dhanuna? They couldn't even catch the people who damaged the "Sirasa" office!

    Friday, 26 March 2010 09:24 PM

    If accidently found, he can be released on 'Police Bail,' right?
