The transfer of the CID’s Organised Crimes Investigation Unit OIC Inspector Nishantha Silva to the Negombo Division, was cancelled with effect from yesterday, the Police said.
The IGP on Sunday (18) transferred IP Silva on service requirement.
However, the Inspector had appealed to the National Police Commission (NPC) over his transfer. Several civil organizations and Amnesty International had expressed its concern over the transfer.
CID Director SSP Shani Abeysekera said he was reinstated by the IGP yesterday on service requirement. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
