The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says it is concerning that the Criminal Investigation Department has failed to conduct a stringent investigation pertaining to gas leak explosions thus far.
Speaking during a media briefing today, Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahuman said any individual who criticizes the President or the government on social media will be taken in for questioning by the CID.
MP Rahuman questioned whether the CID has thus far been unable to bring in any representative of Litro Gas for questioning due to political interference, even after several incidents which resulted in loss of life and damages to property.
Furthermore, the MP questioned whether officials of gas companies reached decisions to change the composition of gas cylinders with the prior knowledge of politicians.
He said if legal action is taken against these officials, they will not hesitate to reveal which politicians were behind the matter.
MP Rahuman claimed the CID is being politically influenced to refrain from taking legal action against Litro Gas.
