October 18, 2018 07:02 pm
Former DIG Nalaka de Silva left the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) premises, a short while ago, after being questioned for nearly 9 hours.
The officers of the CID had recorded a statement from the former DIG of the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) in connection with the alleged assassination plot against the President and former Defence Secretary.
Nalaka de Silva was also ordered to appear before the CID once again tomorrow (19).
He had arrived at the CID at around 10.00 a.m. this morning to give a statement on the inquiry into the alleged assassination plot on President and former Defense Secretary.
He was ordered to appear before the CID on October 16, however, owing to a personal reason he has failed to comply with the instructions of the CID.
Director (Operations) of Anti-Corruption Movement, Namal Kumara, had last month uncovered information of the conspiracy and the alleged conversations that he had with former DIG Nalaka de Silva regarding the matter and other controversial topics.
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) subsequently commenced investigations regarding the alleged conspiracy and has recorded statements from both Namal Kumara and the former DIG on multiple occasions.
