CID concludes the 3rd day of recording statement from the former DIG Nalaka de Silva on VIP assassination allegations after nearly 9 hours of interrogation.
Former DIG Nalaka de Silva arrived at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for the 3rd day this morning (22), to record a statement on the VIP assassination allegations.
DIG Nalaka de Silva, former Director of the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID), is currently under investigation in connection with an alleged conspiracy to assassinate the President and the former Defense Secretary.
He was questioned by the CID for 9 hours on the 18th October and was asked to return on the next day for further questioning. He was grilled for nearly 9 hours on the 19th October as well.
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 CID subsequently commenced investigations regarding the alleged conspiracy and has recorded statements from both Namal Kumara and the former DIG on multiple occasions.
