Noting that a video was broadcast by a TV channel, the CID had sought a court order to obtain unedited video footage with regard to this statement.
Accordingly, the Additional magistrate ordered a few electronic media outlets to submit unedited video footage containing the relevant statement, to the CID.
The CID informed Additional Magistrate Liyanage that they had begun a probe into a complaint lodged by Ven. Hadigalle Wimalasara Thera of the Jathika Hela Urumaya, and on instructions received from Acting Inspector General of Police Chandana Wickremaratna.
