Police yesterday suspected the fire at the Archives of the Anuradhapura Chief Magistrate’s Court to be the work of some interested party. Anuradhapura DIG Kithsiri Dayananda said he suspected foul play.
The fire in the archive in the Magistrate’s Court premises destroyed most documents. Anuradhapura Ceylon Electricity Board chief engineer and a team investigated the building’s electricity circuit and confirmed that the fire which erupted yesterday morning was not due to an electrical short circuit.
Anuradhapura Chief Magistrate Darshikha Wimalasiri and police investigated the Court premises and found foot prints on two walls adjoining the Court and a pre-school.
