A Sri Lankan, Delushka De Silva, has become the centre of an investigation, both in Sri Lanka and in Manchester.
It is learnt that Delushka de Silva Wickrematilleke had ‘vanished’ from Sri Lanka around November last year, taking with her Rs. 10.2 million from a leading travel agency in Colombo where she worked as an assistant manager.
“She was traced to Manchester, where she was found working for an airline and the local police and the Interpol branch in London were informed about this. However, by the time the police went there, she had vanished from her workplace,” said a highly placed police source.
Delushka’s whereabouts in London at present are not known but Metropolitan Police feel that she must be staying with friends.
