Duo nabbed for running bogus kachcheri

By Shane Seneviratne

A man who is said to be an All Island JP and another man allegedly operating a bogus kachcheri were arrested, Kandy police said.

The arrest was carried out by its special crime unit. According to police, the duo was taken in for questioning at Colombo Street. It was later revealed that their office, located close to Dharmarajah College, had bogus documents such as deeds and official seals, HQI Nipuna Dehigama said.

Police said they suspect that the office was issuing false documents relevant to school admissions for parents seeking new schools for their children.

The suspects were to be produced before the Kandy magistrate yesterday. DIG G. Navaratne is in charge of this special anti-crime unit which acts exclusively against white-collar criminals. Investigations continue under HQI Dehigama and his team.
