Didn’t instruct IGP to cancel IP Nishantha's transfer: NPC

21 November 2018 12:30 am - 22     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The National Police Commission (NPC) said yesterday it had not directed the IGP to cancel the transfer of the CID’s Organised Crimes Investigation Unit OIC, IP Nishantha Silva.

Several reports claimed that the NPC had directed the IGP to cancel the transfer of IP Nishantha Silva.

NPC Secretary Saman Dissanayaka said the NPC had not recommended IP Nishantha’s transfer as the CID did not belong to the commission’s functional division.

The Secretary said both the transfer and its withdrawal had been made by the IGP.  (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    When those who above him do not know what they are doing, why should we expect only the IGP to show some sanity?

    FUNCTIONAL DIVISION - on in layman's terms - "they (NPC) are not responsible" ? -JARGON ! ! Wednesday, 21 November 2018 07:23 AM

    " CID did not belong to the commission’s functional division " - if so - then where should the officers of the CID have to turn to for such blatent actions on "their functions". ?

    Why not all policeman ? Wednesday, 21 November 2018 07:27 AM

    Is NPC giving second life for the IGP ? - We thought NPC umbrella should shade all policeman.. - the public requires a response.
