I made no such statement - Admiral Karannagoda

Former Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda referring to the Daily News page one article published on March 12 under the headline “Abduction and killing of 11 youth - Unit was under my command”, said there was no questioning by the CID on the matters referred to in the news item for him to admit or deny that there was a unit under his command or under his direct supervision like the one alluded to in the news item.

He said the information contained in the article is totally false and would amount to interference in the ongoing investigations. We regret the error.
