Ex-Army Inteligence Chief to be quizzed over Lasantha Wickramatunge 's murder

By Indika Ramanayake - The Terrorist Investigation Unit said the former Army Intelligence Chief would be quizzed in connection with the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga, within the course of the coming week.

It is reported that the former Chief of Army Intelligence is to be quizzed in connection with the information gathered from the Army Intelligence Operatives quizzed so far. Already 15 members of the Army Intelligence have been taken into custody for questioning.

Meanwhile CID told Court yesterday it was trying to find out whether there were calls taken from the confiscated mobile phone number to the mobile phone of slain Sunday Leader editor-in-chief Lasantha Wickrematunga.

Detectives told the Mount Lavinia Magistrate that the suspect in police custody had made contradictory statements to the CID and to the Mirihana police.

The Counsel who appeared for the Wickrametunge family asked the detectives about media reports on the arrest of 15 people in connection with the killing of Mr. Wickremetunga but Inspector Chandraratne said he was not aware of any such arrests.

The suspect who is alleged to have stolen Mr. Wickremetunga’s mobile phone was remanded till March 18.
