Former Colombo Additional Magistrate Thilina Gamage appeared before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today to be questioned over the possession of a baby elephant without valid documents.

Gamage was summoned on several occasions earlier by the CID. However he had repeatedly failed to appear at the CID.

He filed an anticipatory bail application at the Gangodawila Magistrate Courts. On June 2, he was granted bail on a cash bail of Rs 500,000 and four sureties of Rs 2.5 million each.

He is alleged to have kept in possession an elephant calf named Sakura. It was discovered at his residence in early 2015. The calf has been estimated at a value of Rs 6.9 million.
