Law and Order Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara recommended the National Police Commission (NPC) to send DIG Nalaka Silva on compulsory leave to facilitate an independent inquiry.

DIG Nalaka de Silva, who was in charge of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) and 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.

He was transferred temporarily to the Police IT division, but the Minister has now urged the NPC to send him on leave.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Good move. But not only Nalaka Silva Mr. Minister, the joker IGP too.

    That is not correct. according to President, action against CDS must be after case filed. So here action only after inquiries completed. Why double standards ??

    Police comes to worse. People fear to give the information's. Underworld has link with top DIG's.

    So everyone has judged and convicted and condemned Nalaka Silva from Ministers Parliament and some members of the public. Kangaroo justice prevails in Sri Lanka. Nalaka should be arrested and punished on say-so of one witness but CDS should not be charged in spite of a prima facie case accepted by a magistrate who ordered further action. Justice in paradise. - where art thou ?
