    Surprising the CID arresting a suspect on a 1m fraud, this actress must have pulled some strings definitely. I know of multiple fraud cases ranging from 1m to 20m where the CID is simply sitting and making deals from all sides.

    Why the Mirihana Special Crime operation did not take action when she complained. They waited until instruction comes from DIG-Western Province.

    DOES SHE HAVE PROOF THAT THE 1M WAS GIVEN??? IF NOT NO CASE

    In Sri Lanka this is not required, the Police can hatch the proof according to whims and fancies for the right "something". Remember Thajudeen case.
