Man posing as SLA Major arrested in Ki値inochchi for extortion

[TamilNet, Monday, 15 November 2010, 10:57 GMT]
Ki値inochchi police arrested Sunday a man posing as a Major in Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and three men led by him. He had taken 150,000 rupees from each parent of the LTTE cadres now held in the custody of the SLA, promising that he would get them released, police sources said. The gang led by the man posing as army major had claimed that they could get their children released when about 300 LTTE cadres would be brought to Ka'n'nakipuram Central College in Ki値inochchi Sunday morning, the police said.

Agreeing to the demand, large number of parents and relatives had come to the school ready with the money, Ki値inochchi Police said.

Police arrested the imposter and his three men with the help of the Army Intelligence Unit members when the gang arrived at the scene.

Police and Army Intelligence Units have started investigations to arrest the others involved in the scam.
