The National Police Commission (NPC) today ordered IGP Pujith Jayasundera to send DIG Nalaka Silva on compulsory leave with immediate effect following a directive from Law and Order Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara.

Minister Madduma Bandara recommended the NPC to send DIG Silva on compulsory leave to facilitate an independent inquiry.

DIG Nalaka de Silva, was earlier in charge of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) but is currently mired in a controversy over a leaked phone conversation of an alleged plot to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
