A bail condition removed for ex-DIG in Vidya case Featured

A bail condition imposed on former Jaffna DIG Lalith Jayasinghe has been removed.

Arrested for having allegedly aided and abetted the killers of Pungudutivu schoolgirl Sivaloganathan Vidya, the senior policeman is presently out on bail.

Following a request by his lawyers, Kayts magistrate A.M.M. Rial today (28) removed a condition that the accused should report to the CID on the first Monday of every month.

The magistrate also ordered the CID to arrest a sub inspector identified as Sri Gajan on a charge of having aided the killers to flee.

The 18-year-old Vidya was gang-raped and murdered on 13 May 2015.

The case will be taken up again on June 20.
