Sri Lanka police question Fonseka’s daughter at the airport

May 20, Colombo: The Sri Lankan police have briefly detained and questioned the youngest daughter of the jailed former army commander Sarath Fonseka at the Colombo airport on Friday when she was returning to the country from the United States.

The former army chief’s wife Anoma Fonseka said her daughter Aparna Fonseka was questioned by the police on the whereabouts of her brother-in-law Danuna Tilakaratne.

Danuna Tilakaratne, who was accused of earning profits from arms procurement deals of the Army that were awarded to him by the former Army Commander General Fonseka during the war with the LTTE, is wanted by the police, and remains at large.
