The CID commenced an investigation into the matter after several groups made a formal complaint requesting a thorough investigation be conducted to verify if foul play was involved in the death of Ven. Sobitha.
Meanwhile, MP Udaya Gammanpila has requested that a presidential commission be appointed to investigate the death of the influential monk, who played an important role at the 2015 Presidential election.
Dhammaloka claimed that it was strange how some of the medical reports of the late monk had got misplaced.
“Ven. Sobitha underwent a heart surgery at one hospital, and he had recovered, but he was then transferred to another hospital, when it was not required, and that’s where he became critical. He was once again then transferred back to the first hospital, this is suspicious,” Dhammaloka claimed in a letter to the CID.
