The committee probing allegations against IGP Pujith Jayasundara will complete the investigation as soon as possible, Deputy Minister of Law and Order, Nalin Bandara Jayamaha told a news breifing today.

Responding to a question asked by journalists as to when investigations would be completed, he said he cannot give a time frame but it would not be delayed for any reason.

Referring to a statement made by an Indian about a plot to assassinate former president Mahinda Rajpaksa, the deputy minister said the Indian's family members had said the man was suffering from a mental illness as a result of an accident .

He also referred to the alleged plot to kill President Maithripala Sirisena and former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and said Mr. Rajapaksa had stated that he was satisfied with the security provided. “Government spends Rs.3.5 million a day for former defense secretary's security,” the deputy minister said.

He said the investigations were being carried out by the CID without any political interference. He said DIG Nalaka de Silva and others would be remanded if the Judiciary decides it was necessary.

Mr. Jayamaha also dismissed claims that sniper rifle belonging to the police had disappeared. (Yohan Perera)
