CID team in Saudi Arabia to bring down Rila

A seven member Criminal Investigations Department (CID) team left for Saudi Arabia to bring down Maulana Rila, who had allegedly involved in the Easter Sunday attacks in Colombo and outskirts.

The suspect was arrested by the Saudi authorities on a request made by the Sri Lankan government. The suspect who was on a pilgrimage to Mecca was expected to arrive in Colombo on April 30 and his name was in the list of passengers due to arrive in Colombo from Saudi Arabia.

CID sleuths having understood that the suspect was not on board the flight informed the Saudi authorities to arrest him through Interpol and International intelligence agencies.

He had been found from a washroom at the airport.
