Sri Lanka: Police probe on missing journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda draws blank

Ninety nine days after the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda, Police are yet to come up with any clues about his whereabouts, Police spokesman Prishantha Jayakoday said.

The disappointing news from the police came as journalists and media rights activists prepare to mark World Press Freedom Day, May 3.

Mr. Ekneligoda has been missing since January 24 and his wife Sandya Eknaligoda said she feared he was abducted. Alleging police inaction, she has written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa and filed a habeus corpus case.

The Colombo Crimes Division which is carrying out the investigations has found no clues so far, the Sunday Times understands.
