Another 24 complaints against Sakvithi

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) probing the Rs 1 billion fraud of Sakvithi Ranasinghe has received 24 more additional complaints from those who have lost their deposits, Police Media Spokesman, Superintendent of Police Prishantha Jayakody told the Sunday Observer.

A man who had identified Sakvithi Ranasinghe in disguise while posing as an English teacher in Chilaw had demanded Rs 2 million from him to shield him from the police. The suspect had enrolled himself in an English class conducted by Ranasinghe in Chilaw. The suspect from Hettipola was arrested by a team of CID sleuths last week.

It was revealed that Ranasinghe who returned to Sri Lanka with his family three months ago had sought refuge in a house at Chilaw. Although he started an English class in Chilaw, he fled the area when he was unmasked by a man who followed his classes. He then rented out a house at Hekitta, Wattala and led a quiet life doing odd jobs to eke out a living. The police Media Spokesman said that 2,900 complaints of depositors are being investigated by the CID.
