Snr Army officer still absconding
By Keerthi Mendis
A senior officer of the Mattakkuliya Army Camp, who is sought by the Police for questioning, over the murder of the Mattakkuliya Grama Niladhari’s husband, at her behest, is still absconding.
The Grama Niladhari’s husband had been strangled to death and his body dumped in the Kelani River. Though the Colombo North Crimes Detection Unit had informed the Mattakkuliya Army Camp on the need to question the said senior officer over the incident, the failure of the Army Camp to produce the officer concerned has scuttled the inquiries into the case.
