Four fake CID ‘officers’ held

Four suspects, disguised as Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers, were arrested on Thursday (5) for allegedly extorting money from a woman, the Police Media Unit said.

The suspects had informed a woman in Pituwalgoda, Yakkala claiming that she has threats from the underworld and asked her to pay Rs. 100,000 to them in order to defend her. The woman had lodged a complaint on this matter at the Gampaha Crimes Division. The Police said the suspects are 37, 40 and 43 years old residents of Balangoda, Aththanagalle, Gampaha and Wathuragama.

The suspects were to be produced before the Gampaha Magistrate yesterday.
