DIG in charge of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) Nalaka de Silva has been temporarily transferred to the IT division yesterday, Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said.

He said the transfer was made by the IGP under the covering approval of the National Police Commission.

Earlier, IGP Pujith Jayasundara handed over the investigations to the CID after a phone conversation allegedly made between DIG Nalaka de Silva and a member of the Anti Corruption Force about the President, the Prime Minister, the STF Commandant and former Defence Secretary went viral on media and social media platforms.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Stage one started as expected for those who supports mahasona, Now its time to begin the bailing out process. Soon the mahasona would be out in the streets.
