COLOMBO (News 1st) – DIG Nalaka De Silva was interrogated at length at the Criminal Investigations Department today (October 18). He is expected to appear before the CID tomorrow as well.

He was requested to appear before the CID on the 16th of this month following a startling revelation made by Namal Kumara, the Operations Director of the Anti-Corruption Movement regarding an alleged plot to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena and Former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. However, he did not appear on the 16th citing personal reasons. Thereby the Cinnamon Gardens Police issued notice on him for the second time this morning.

General Secretary of the UPFA, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera expressing his views on the matter stated that DIG Nalaka de Silva could have been arrested before carrying out investigation adding that instead he was only sent on mandatory leave and was recently suspended. The Minister also noted that they are hoping to arrest him after obtaining information. Minister Amaraweera said that though he was treated in this manner, that if it was an average person was accused of such a thing that he/she would not be so fortunate.

The Minister added if the authorities are considering the plot to assassinate the president of the country as a minor issue, that he has a major problem about it.
