Police Special Task Force (STF) Commandant Senior DIG M. R. Latheef said he would discuss with IGP Pujith Jayasundara regarding the investigation into the allegations levelled against the DIG in charge of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID).

During a media briefing in Kandy on Wednesday, Anti Corruption Force Director Namal Kumara revealed that DIG in charge of TID Nalaka de Silva had allegedly tried to use him to frame STF Commandant Senior DIG M. R. Latheef.

The Commandant said yesterday that he was in discussion with the Police Headquarters to take further action as his name was mentioned in the conversation.

He said he would have a discussion with the IGP on the possibility of handing over the investigation to the CID, instead of the Special Investigation Unit (SIU). (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    This STF guy thinks too much about him. He wants to tell the IGP how to conduct an inquiry against the DIG who is against him. You can’t have an egoistic character in charge of the combat division of the Police.

    Jaliya, the commander does "think" strategically unlike most others in the forces. This is why he was trained by the top British SAS, CIA, and countless other international agencies. Do you have a problem with his race?

    This Government seems playing with the Security of the country. Too many bad comments about Military and Police in the recent past, that must stop soon.

    One thing is clear. STF has become a thorn in the flesh for those who were running the black money and drug business and they want to destabilize the STF who is doing great service to the community. Now look at the track record record of STF before and after the present commandant took charge and this tells whole story in graphic detail. story ends.
