The CID told Court that the investigation had been completed and the report had been sent to the Attorney General.

Accordingly, the CID informed the court that the next step would be taken against the suspect on the advice of the Attorney General.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandara ordered the case to be called again on 5th of April 2018.

The CID was ordered to report on the progress of the legal actions on that day.
