    Criminal Investigation Division (CID) Director SSP Shani Abeysekera should be put on compulsory leave, his passport should be taken by the law enforcement agencies and criminal investigations should be carried out on this uncouth officer.

    Better not to express if ill-informed. One of the true Officers

    This particular Police Officer attached to the CID is outstanding in every aspect, he undertook so many inquiries into various crimes connected to Rajapaksas or his associates. This shows the National Police Commission is not fit for purpose. Why is everyone keeping quiet ? I think white vans will roll out soon.

    This was a brave officer unafraid to upset the apple cart. The wheels of Providence turn slowly but surely. Happy with all the previous appointments, disappointed to hear this.

    Is this the same NPC which once had a strong back bone to stand against politically motivated transfers of Police Officers, cancel them and do the right thing?
