President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed Police Chief N.K. Ilangakoon to conduct a full-scale investigation into the disappearance of police sergeant Gunathilaka, who was attached to the Vavuniya DIG Office Special Investigation Unit, the Presidential Media Unit said.

In the wake of the President’s directive, the Police have launched an immediate investigation into the disappearance of the police sergeant .

The President is known to have given this directive after having seen a news item in a newspaper that said, “What happened to the police sergeant after he gave a statement on a treasure hunting incident? President uncle please find our father.”

The news item also states that the sergeant had left the Vavuniya police station on August 7 saying he was going home but his whereabouts are not known since then.

Vavuniya Police DIG U.K. Dissanayake is currently in remand custody in connection with a treasure hunting incident.

    It is the responsibility of the IGP to conduct investigations without being told to do so.

    One would think that the SL Police would have initiated a full scale investigation on their own accord without having to be instructed by our President...
