Top STF officer grilled over abductions, more arrests imminent

The Director of the Special Task Force’s Intelligence Unit has been questioned while two other officers have been arrested in connection with the abductions and extortion incidents in Colombo.
This new turn of events comes following the arrest of former commanding officer of the Air Force Nishantha Gajanayake for the second time.
Gajanayake was initially taken into custody after UNP MP Lakshman Seneviratne disclosed the ex- commanding officer’s involvement in the abductions.
However, following his arrest, Gajanayake was released on police bail the very same day he was arrested.
But subsequent to the issue being taken up again in Parliament following Gajanayake’s release on police bail, he was again arrested by the respective officers.
The Nation learns that the suspect has revealed many names including that of a politician and several intelligence officers who are part of the racket. They too are expected to be arrested shortly.
