The CID informed court yesterday that former Embilipitiya police OIC, who is on an arrest order in connection with the killing of a youth, was evading giving a statement to the police.
This was made known when the relevant case was taken up for hearing before Embilipitiya Additional Magistrate Prasanna Fernando.
On this occasion the CID officials told court that the other police officers on whom arrest order has been issued had given statements before the CID.
These officers informed court that former Embilipitiya police OIC alone was evading giving a statement.
Meanwhile former Embilipitiya SP D. C. Dharmaratne has been remanded till March 2nd in connection with the incident.
At the time the case was taken up for hearing yesterday the forensic officer submitted to court the relevant post mortem report.
The magistrate said that the verdict with regard to the report would be given tomorrow after studying it.
Attorney-at-law Udul Premaratne appearing for the affected party expressed his views to media after the hearing of the case.
