Whilst investigating the financial mismanagement at Ceylinco Group of companies, an innocent person who served the company was on the verge of being accused by the probing authorities over a mistaken identity.

Relating to the investigations regarding a Ceylinco company, the authorities had initiated a process to accuse one Ajith over accepting deposits and signing documents by another Ajith who was employed in the capacity of a manager many years ago. This manager had exerted his authority by signing documents on behalf of the company whilst being in the employ of that company.

The talk is that the authorities had mistakenly assumed that the signatures placed by this manager as that of the other Ajith and had initiated a process to bring charges against him (the other Ajith). Later it had been revealed that the function of signing on behalf of the company had been carried out by the manager and not the other person, insiders claimed.

They noted that investigators in their zeal to nab the offenders however must firmly establish proper identity of people concerned than rushing to conclusions to the detriment of their careers and social standing of those not involved, though they carry the same name.
