In a startling turn of events in the investigation into Prageeth Eknaligoda’s alleged disappearance, it has surfaced that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is to question his alleged mistress and the Media Secretary to MP Douglas Devananda, Nelson Edirisinghe.

Four army personnel have so far been arrested, and questioned over the disappearance of Eknaligoda, described as a journalist and cartoonist. Among these are two lieutenant colonels, a staff sergeant, and a corporal.As response to Sandya Eknaligoda’s accusation that crucial details of her husband’s alleged disappearance have been concealed, the Police Spokesmen stated that the CID cannot release all information relating to the investigation.
