No likely return on deposits nor of ‘debtors’

By L.B. Senaratne

An illegal finance company in Kandy operated by two Indian nationals, had been registered under the name of a local three-wheeler driver, police told courts on Friday.

Kandy Police Special Crimes Investigation Bureau has found that the ‘Sunlanka’ business had been registered under the name of Kumara, a three-wheeler driver resident in Mahiyawa. Kandy Additional Magistrate Ms Thanuja Jayatunge granted bail to five of the remanded suspects, four of whom are women employed by this business and another male suspect, in the ‘Sunlanka’ alleged fraud case. Two persons including the three-wheeler driver remain in custody.

The two Indians behind this business are alleged to have left the country on two flights, and Kumar is alleged to have driven them to the airport, for which he was allegedly paid Rs 5,000, with the promise of returning within two or three days.

While the case is in Courts, a large number of depositors, from various walks of life, are financially marooned, as their monies have been lost, perhaps for ever.
