A gang claiming to be from CID breaks in to ‘Lanka Irida’

A gang claiming to be from the CID broke into the office of ‘Lanka Irida’ week end newspaper Friday at about 9.30 p.m. states Chief editor of the newspaper Chandana Sirimalwatta.

According to Mr. Sirimalwatta the gang of four was headed by a person calling himself Superintendent of Police Gajasinghe. Even though no outsiders are allowed to come into the ‘Lanka Irida’ office, this gang had threatened the security officers and entered the office.

They had told the ‘Lanka’ staff that they wanted to question the chief editor. However, Mr. Sirimalwatta had been away and Gajasinghe had telephoned Mr. Sirimalwatta and ordered him to come to the office immediately. Mr. Sirimalwatta had rejected the order saying if they wanted to question him to come during the day.

The gang had left the office then.
