Speaking to Lanka e News London for the last time at around 9am today morning, Keerthi said that he was now preparing to leave for the Kollupitiya police station and he had been informed by an Indian embassy official would also be coming to the police.
Meanwhile, the CCD has made this arrest. He did not divulge the security information he received to the media. He informed this to the relevant Indian Embassy, for further consideration. Now what is happening now is to hunt the journnalist Keerthi Rathnayake who is a headache for the regime by making the witness the defendant and by exploiting the Indian embassy.
