The Attorney General (AG) has directed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to launch a comprehensive probe against top security officials including former Defence Secretary, IGP, State Intelligence Chief, Commanding Officer of the Special Task Force and the Senior DIG of the Western  Province, informed sources said.   

Sources said the AG had made these directions based on the two interim reports and recommendations of the board of inquiry appointed by the President following the Easter Sunday bombings.

“The AG in two letters to the Acting IGP has directed that a comprehensive criminal investigation be conducted by the CID against the IGP. It has further directed Acting IGP to forward investigative material pertaining to the said investigation to him for consideration,” sources said.  

He had also directed the Acting IGP to refer the matter to the National Police Commission (NPC) to take disciplinary action against the Senior DIG in charge of the Western Province, Commanding Officer of the Special Task Force and the Chief of State Intelligence for their lapses in duty.

    No point in investigating and punishing as any criminal would be considered a national hero and get a presidential pardon.

    Above all these officers, there were highly Irresponsible Politicians, who had no Leadership qualities or Qualification to handle Security of a country, so could not effectively direct these officers on preemptive action by effectively commanding them. Who is initiating action against those top Politicians ?

    Good, do it promptly and punish them to respect the victims at least.

    What actually missed here was Command for tri-forces to promptly act either on information or after the first incident. CDS being the top man could have immediately Commanded the Force elements to prevent such a Huge Loss !. Hasn't CDS utterly failed in his Duty ?

    These are just scapegoats who have to hold their heads for the person in charge. The president.
