UPFA MP Wimal Weerawansa was questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) yesterday over the VIP assassination plot. 


He was summoned by the CID to record a statement based on information provided by the Indian national who is in custody in connection with the case. 

Earlier, the CID informed court that summons had been issued for MPs Namal Rajapaksa, Wimal Weerawansa and his wife Shashi Weerawansa, to report to the CID to record their statements with regard to the alleged assassination plot. Subsequently, the CID recorded a statement from MP Namal Rajapaksa on January 23. 

Under interrogation, the Indian national had claimed to have met the MPs and Shashi Weerawansa on a previous occasion. 

Former Terrorist Investigation Division DIG Nalaka Silva is in remanded custody over the incident.
