The wife of missing journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda has requested Sri Lanka’s army to handover officers connected to the abduction to the CID for investigations.
Speaking to media, Sandhya Eknaligoda said she had information regarding a specific officer, who is imprisoned in a camp in Girithale, Minneriya or Batticaloa, the DailyMirror reported.
“The Rajapaksa regime is connected to the disappearance of my husband. We fear that he may have been bumped off and we would not be able to listen to his story. Therefore I request the Army Commander to hand over any officer connected to my husband’s disappearance to the CID for further investigations,” she said.
“I request the President to direct the CID to do a thorough investigation the incident into the disappearance of my husband. The Rajapaksa government did nothing about investigating my husband’s disappearance when they were in power. Now they are talking nonsense saying if the UPFA wins the election, it will investigate the disappearance,” she further added.
Two intelligence officers were arrested in relation to the abduction last week and the CID is expected to question the men.
