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)

    Main intension of grabbing power by force is to come out of CID arresting MR and the clan. By cancelling these transfers their hopes are being shattered. Chief Justice atlest please help them to go for a election so that they can give an opportunity to people to vote them into power to get voters looted.

    Thanks for Ranil and the UNF government for bringing these independent commissions. This will be lost if we elect the Rajapaksa clan
