Smartphone found from A’pelessa Prison

The Prison Intelligence Unit on a tip off yesterday found a smartphone near the Special Section ‘Y’, where MP Ranjan Ramanayake and several other inmates are housed in the Angunakolapelessa Prison.

The mobile phone with no IMEI number mentioned on it was found buried between the section ‘Y’ and the parapet wall around 11.40 a.m. during a sudden search operation, said the Prisons Media Spokesman, Commissioner Chandana Ekanayake.

Intelligence officers suspect the mobile phone might have been brought in for the use of MP Ramanayake.

Further investigations are being carried out and the mobile phone will be handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for inquiries.
