Yoshitha Rajapaksa, son of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, has been summoned by the Colombo Crimes Division(CCD) to record a statement regarding the light aircraft found at the Economic Centre at Narahenpita in January, the CCD said. 

A police patrolling team recovered the two seater aircraft upon a tip-off made to emergency number 119 on 12 January.

According to the police, two individuals were preparing to transport it to another location at the time when the teams approached.

However, senior movie director Chandran Rutnam later claimed that the aircraft belonged to him and was gifted to Yoshitha a few years ago.
