as it 'click bank' or 'terror communication' found from Negombo?

Police yesterday raided a queer type gadget centre being conducted by a Chinese national and two Tamils at a lodging place down Sylvester Road in Eththukala, Negombo. A dialogue has cropped up in social media by now as for what purpose 402 I phones of I 6 type and 17400 sim cards and 60 routers were activated on the racks there. 

The opinion of some people is that an activity known as 'click bank' had been operated there. Clicks
and 'likes' are secured through this procedure for a payment on application of somebody where stacks of 'likes' are provided to watch fraudulent websites of social media of the internet. Some people have given their opinion that an activity of this manner can be carried out by activating a large number of internet connections  at one and the same place and by changing their numbers on and off.

It is the opinion of police that this is a place where telephone calls were made available in a clandestine manner. A posse had conducted a raid in dawn yesterday (7) according to information received about this location conducted by the Chinese national.

A high official of the special task force has mentioned that international calls were allowed from this place on an illegal manner to those connected to extremist groups and Chinese nationals and other foreigners during the past period. It was revealed that this place concerned had been maintained for a period of about 6 months without permission of telecommunication regulatory commission and that five Chinese nationals had been in service here. 

Police special task force has informed that there is a possibility of taking foreign telephone calls without getting caught to Sri Lanka telephone network. It is said that during the past members alleged to belong to extremist groups have come to these two centres which offer facilities of international telephone calls and taken calls to foreigners. 

The special task force say that the said two houses were taken on rent for a period of about six months for the sum of 3 lakhs a month and this illicit telephone centres had been in operation for about six months. It has been reported that subsequent to the April 21st series of bomb blasts they had buried all these equipment and had gone into hiding at various points. The Chinese national concerned has come back here two weeks after that and had dug out the equipment and had continued to carry on operations of this illicit telecommunication centre. 

It is understood that the said Chinese national is someone who remains in this country without a valid visa and the other two suspects taken into custody are said to be residents of Kalpitiya and Negombo.
