Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage ordered the release of Iresha Trading Pvt Limited Director Asanka Abeywardana, who allegedly defrauded the New Rathna Rice Company of Rs.16 million promising to supply fertilizer, on strict bail conditions yesterday (5).

The Magistrate made this order after considering the bail request made by senior lawyer Ajith Pathirana who represented the suspect.

The police informed the court that a comprehensive investigation has been launched into the incident and more suspects are to be arrested.
