Sangeetha has been interrogated mainly on her relationship with Priyamali as well as the transactions they have done together.

Meanwhile, the CID had interrogated popular and veteran actress Semini Iddamalgoda for four hours and recorded a statement for having close relations with Priyamali.

Another new actress has also been summoned to the CID over the investigations into Priyamali but she has not reported to the CID yet.

The CID officers are also looking into Rs.10.5 million allegedly given by Priyamali to a couple of popular TV presenters of Derana TV to buy a house.

This couple is also to be summoned to the CID for questioning.

Meanwhile, the CID questioned and recorded statements from former minister and veteran actor Jeevan Kumaratunga and his wife for almost five hours last Saturday.

The officers had focused on the relationship between Priyamali and Kumaratunga’s family members and the production of a film.

The CID revealed that several members of his family are to be questioned in the future as well.
