Police stated today that action will be filed against the family who haboured the Bandagiriya youth after he escaped from police custody.

The youth was questioned extensively last night after he was handed over to police by a resident monk of Dheegawalukaramaya Raja Maha Viharaya in Dikwella.

During the interrogation, the suspect told police that his two brothers had helped with concealing his whereabouts with relatives in Weeraketiya and Beliatta.

A senior officer attached to the Tangalle Crime Division responsible for carrying out investigations told our news team that statements will also be recorded from the relatives of the suspect.
