The younger daughter of the jailed former army chief Sarath Fonseka was briefly held at the Colombo airport's immigration counter on Friday when she was returning to the country from US, family said.

Anoma Fonseka, the former army chief's wife said that Aparna Fonseka was quizzed by the police about her brother in law Danuna Thilakaratne who is wanted by the police for his misconduct in supplying material to the Army when his father in law was the commander of the army.

He continues to evade arrest.

Sarath Fonseka was found guilty by a military tribunal over the same case and was sentenced to a 30 month jail term which he is currently serving.
