Mr.Sanath Gunatileke had reported to the CID headquarters Wednesday around four in the evening. As he failed to appear at the scheduled time of 10 a.m., the Police searched for him at several places to take him to the CID office, sources said.

The Police sources said he was being interrogated in connection with a number of criminal acts alleged to have been committed during the PA regime.
