State Minister Sriyani Abeywickrame said yesterday TID's DIG Nalaka Silva should be interdicted and arrested immediately over the alleged plot to kill President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
She told parliament that it was a serious matter and added that when there was an allegation involving criminal activity, what was done first was to interdict and arrest the person.
She said they as government members, were not satisfied with the conduct of IGP Pujith Jayasundara.
"We request that the IGP be removed and investigations initiated under a new IGP," she said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
