Colombo Additional Magistrate, Ms. Sujatha Alahapperuma directed five telecommunication institutions to disclose the names and the details of the owners of the telephones who were alleged to have given indecent telephone calls to the MTV News Director, Susil Kindelpitiya.

The News Director on February 29 complained to the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) that some persons have attempted either to kidnap him or to harm him.

He alleged he was abused in filth by the anonymous callers. He added he left his residence at Batalanda, Gothatuwa around 8 a.m. and returned home by 7 p m.. While going to his office he was threatened by two unidentified persons.

The two youngsters in the ages of 20 to 25 years had followed him up to the Kotikawatte Junction and thereafter they had communicated with someone over the phone.

Once Mr. Kindelpitiya sent his driver in his car, the two youngsters had forcibly stopped and opened the rear door, and having found that he was not there, they had slammed the door saying “he was not there”.

Similarly once on his way home a vehicle had overtaken his vehicle and obstructed without allowing him to move forward.

The complainant stated he had informed this to the Police since the journalists were subjected to harassment.

The CCD told the Magistrate the driver, Chaminda Kumara had confirmed what Mr. Kindelpitiya had complained and sought the Magistrate’s direction to the five telecommunication institutions to provide the CCD with the details of the conversations and the names of the owners of those telephones.

Accordingly the Magistrate ordered the Telecommunication institutions to provide the details to the CCD and postponed further inquiries for May 30.
