Colombo:Sri Lanka's Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials today (May 3, 2005) raided the premises of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), according to official sources.

There were about 60 to 70 staff members working at the time when the authorities entered, SLC spokesman Ray Illangakoon, said.

According to a witness, police closed the front gate and were not allowing anyone to go in or out.

SLC has been in crisis ever since sports minister Jeevan Kumaratunga last month suspended its registration for alleged misuse of funds and appointed an ad-hoc committe to conduct the administration.
