Still no trace of Eknaligoda
There was no news yet about missing Lanka E News journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda who went missing from January 24, the journalist’s wife Sandya Eknaligoda said yesterday.
“The Police say they have not finished their investigations yet and they recently questioned the family”, she said.
Free Media Movement Secretary Sunil Jayasekara charged that the Police and the government were not doing their best to locate the whereabouts of Mr. Eknaligoda and they as an organization had given their maximum support to help the police but to no avail.
“We have asked the international community to pressurize the government about this, but there has been no response”, he said.
However, he said main foreign embassies had been notified and that they were keeping an eye on the issue willing to give their support if needed.
Prageeth Eknaligoda, who was last seen on January, 24 , went missing on his way home from work on the same date. When a colleague who called Mr. Eknaligoda last on that day, he had overheard him tell the person he was traveling with that they were going in the wrong direction.
