Concerns were raised as to the whereabouts of Senior DIG Lalith Jayasinghe, who was remanded over Vithya Sivaloganathan murder, after the vehicle transporting him to prison met with an accident.

Police Media Spokesman, Superintendent of Police Ruwan Gunasekara said that the vehicle had fallen into a ditch but no injuries were reported. "From what the Kayts Police reported, it was not a major accident, and no injuries were reported."

However, during a press briefing at the Government Information Department, when journalists raised questions as to where the suspect SDIG was and to which prison he was being taken, SP Gunasekara said he was unaware of the exact place, but that the suspect was indeed remanded until July 25.

"We have arrested him, and produced him before the Kayt's Magistrate and he was remanded. And he will be in remand until the 25th," he said.
