Army Intelligence officer, Major Chandana Pradeep, who was found guilty by the Army’s Court of Inquiry, was transferred from the Military Intelligence Corps yesterday, informed sources said.

“He was transferred to a shadow unit with effect from yesterday,” a senior military official told the Daily Mirror yesterday.

The decision has been taken after the investigation report of the Army’s Court of Inquiry, appointed to probe the alleged brawl between the Army Major and a government Minister’s son at a Colombo hotel, revealed that the Major had provided security to a businessman at the time of the incident using his service weapon unlawfully.

Major Pradeep was in charge of the Sri Lanka Army’s Colombo-South Intelligence wing. (SJ)

    Let him carry a lighter or a box of matches instead of his service pistol.

    Hi,Kaputakukula,
    If he did not accept the demoted position, who is going to feed his family. We can say so many things,finally he is the one who will virtually face the problems.

    conty Saturday, 13 October 2012 10:33 AM

    How would you know? Was there a golden hand shake behind the scene to take the blame? Was the so called client for whom security was provided a plant to make the case water tight? Would you as a normal citizen be given the same treatment for starting a fight in a public place, illegal security or not? Ans such quick justice as such? There would be a million unanswered questions in this case and many more like cases. As they call S/L the "miracle of Asia" anything is possible.

    Looks like every body is happy with the outcome and what will be the outcome of the false complaint of the major" who assaulted himself".

    Too bad! Why wasn't he thrown in jail?

    There is no point in commenting on this, as we know about our government and its actions.

    The entire World is aware of the Jokes of the Jokers of the corrupt, lawless Banana Republic. It is common knowledge that they protect the criminals, murderers, rapists, drug dealers and terrorists like KP who share the wealth with the corrupt Masters at the expense of the innocent. All are aware of the corrupt Police Force and the Kangaroo Courts in this Nation.

    This is an army "no intelligence" officer

    Bagalawathie Saturday, 13 October 2012 06:46 AM

    kaputakukula Saturday, 13 October 2012 07:04 AM

    Why don't you see the other angle? This major after being shamefully demoted took the new demoted position - a man(?) without self respect.

    saman Saturday, 13 October 2012 07:03 PM

    another word, he will be in jail !!

    hawkins Saturday, 13 October 2012 10:40 PM

    I think major deserve this. He should be punished for tarnishing the image of the Army by going back on his words.

    This outcome was expected and the ruling only goes to prove not to mess around with influential politicos and their siblings. They can get away with anything. Aiyo jerry!!!

    Janaki Kalansuriya Saturday, 13 October 2012 12:37 AM

    Our fear is, "How long before the rank and file start reacting" to this chain of events? We now live in absolute fear of reprisal from within.
