CID probing IP Silva’s departure
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is investigating as to how one of their men fled overseas without prior approval.
Police Headquarters ordered the CID to immediately inquire and report as to how Inspector Nishantha Silva had departed from the country through Katunayake.
Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said that if a police officer is going overseas for duty purposes or for a personal reason he or she should get the approval from the secretary of the ministry. IP Silva, he said, had failed to do.
The statement also said that Silva has gone abroad while several people are asking the officer to be investigated over allegations that he was conducting inquiries in an allegedly biased and unjust manner.
