Sanath's video : CID probe initiated

The Criminal Investigation Division has initiated an investigation to seek those who had uploaded a personal video of former cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya to the internet.

The CID investigation has been initiated after a complaint was lodged citing that a set of individuals had intentionally uploaded the video to the internet.

A CID team of computer experts has also been appointed to question those who had published this story and video clip on websites and on social media.

Possessing and publicizing a video which violates one's privacy as well as uploading it to the internet is an act that is punishable by law.
