Police have taken into custody an individual who attempted to give a bribe of 250 thousand rupees to the Officer-In-Charge of the Horowpathana Police to release Abdul Mohammed Niyaz, considered to be a henchman of the leader of the National Thowheeth Jama’ath organization Zahran Hashim.

This individual who was taken into custody last Saturday is in remand and the attempt to bribe the Police was made so that they would not object to releasing the suspect on bail at the next Court date of 14 May.

It was a 26 year old young man who was taken into custody today inside the Horowpathana Police Station.

The suspect had declared that he would give a bribe of 500 thousand rupees to the OIC of the Horowpathana Police and that he would hand over half the amount today and the balance on the day when the individual in demand is released.

Accordingly, the suspect was taken into custody by investigating officials of the Bribery or Corruption Commission.
