It is reported that a group of STF personnel had gone to forcibly survey a land in the Divulapitiya area with a Coordinating Secretary of a Minister in two vehicles bearing fake number plates.
It has been revealed that the number GK 8766 mentioned in the van they came in was the number plate of a three wheeler registered with the Prisons Department and the motorcycle bearing the number VO 6176 was a motorcycle registered with the Ministry of Economic Development.
Samanthi Jayakody, the owner of a land in Siyambalagahawatte, Ulwalahela, Divulapitiya, had lodged a complaint with the Ministry of Public Security alleging that a person claiming to be the Coordinating Secretary to the Minister had come to the land on the 27th to seize it illegally.

The complainant also handed over security camera footage of the group, the occupants and the vehicle to the police.
It is said that the Special Investigation Unit of the Police has also commenced an investigation regarding the Secretary to the Minister and the alleged STF personnel involved in the incident.
