Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said the 'Siyarata' web journalist Sujeewa Gamage has been arrested for making false accusation.

Accordingly, the journalist was admitted to the Hospital on March 10 claiming that he was abducted, tortured for info on his sources and political contacts before being dumped at a street corner in Maligawatta.

The spokesman said the CCD launched investigation into the incident and it was disclosed that the journalist had made a fake complaint.

It was revealed that he had visited former MP Chathura Senaratne's office at Thimbirigasyaya and left the office after over three hours before having got himself admitted to the Hospital. 

DIG Rohana said the journalist also had met MP Rajitha Senaratne before being admitted to the hospital.

He said the suspect had confessed to the police that there was no truth behind his abduction.

Police Spokesman DIG Rohana said the CCD will question the MP and his son over their links to the journalist and said the journalist would be produced in court.

Following the abduction claim, former speaker Karu Jayasuriya and MP Harsha de Silva also critisized the government in their twitter accounts.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya )

    This is a dirty game, Senaratnas want to consolidate the myth, ' Gota is a dangerous man, who kidnaps opponents in white vans' is true, so they detected, Swiss drama with timid actress Gania Barrister that turned to be a flop, before that dentist senaratna himself acted in silly crocodile play, just before the election, which backfired badly, we know Gota is not a savage as rivals wanted to paint , but uncontrolled deforestation,unabated illegal mining and grabbing government lands,is acid test to confirm, how much a timid person is Gota, but I personally still like him,depend with what action he takes to stop this menace

    Of course it was false. Just like the false story that someone made money out of importing sugar. Or that Namal didn't have to stay in quarantine after visiting Dubai.

    Crooks playing with crooks. This is none of our business. There are so many other important issues. Come clean both parties and answer.

    DIG - are you going to question Karu and Harsha also. This country is becoming like China or Russia- no freedom of speech and militarisation of the government
