Still no trace of missing Sri Lankan journalist


Although two special teams have been deployed by the Homagama police to investigate into the disappearance of Lanka E-News freelance journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda, they are unable to find his whereabouts.

It has been a month since he went missing. The two teams were led by two Inspectors of Police (IPs), police media spokesman, SP Preshantha Jayakody said.

Mr. Ekneligoda went missing on January 24. A complaint was lodged at the Homagama police station by his wife. He had reportedly left the office of Lanka E News in Rajagiriya to return home on January 24, when he had gone missing. It was believed that he could have been abducted while on his way to Homagama. Mr. Ekneligoda was abducted once earlier.

Govt. Info. Department Director Anusha Palpita earlier said he had written to Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mahinda Balasuriya to expedite investigations to find him.
