The Colombo Chief Magistrate Friday discharged all the three officials of the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF), including Nishantha Gajanayake, from the charges of abduction and extortion. The court made the order accepting the submission of the Attorney General (AG) that there was no evidence to support the charges, legal sources in Colombo said.

Earlier the court allowed Nishantha Gajanayke and others on cash and surety bail.

When the case was taken up for further inquiry Friday the court ordered the discharge of the suspects, legal sources said.
