The Colombo Fort Magistrate today issued a warrant for the arrest of teledrama actress Anushka Sonali Sayakkara for not appearing in court in a case involving an alleged attempt to extort a sum of Rs.100,000 from her father, after threatening him.
When the case came up before the Colombo Fort Magistrate Ms. Lanka Jayaratne, the suspect was not present in court. The Slave Island Police filed charge sheets against the suspect under sections 490 and 374 of the penal code. At a previous magisterial inquiry, the suspect was released on bail.
Lodging a complaint with the Slave Island police, the father of the teledrama actress alleged that his daughter had extorted a sum of Rs.100,000 and further alleged that she had attempted to extort a further amount of Rs.100,000 putting him in a fear psychosis. The complainant further told police that he had given her more that Rs.400,000 on several occasions. He told police he was a patient suffering from depression owing to her continuous threats of demanding money. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
