IGP N.K. Illangakoon had ordered the police to hand-over an interim report of investigations into the complaint lodged by 17-year-old school boy and 33-year-old man in Kotadeniyawa, alleging they were assaulted while in police custody.

Police said today the 17-year-old Suranjan Pradeep Senevirathna and 33-year-old Kelum Athanayaka who were arrested on September 11 on suspicions of Seya Sandewmi’s murder had lodged a complaint with the IGP alleging they were harassed and assaulted while in police custody.

Mr. Illangakoon had ordered the report to be handed over on October 7.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said the probes will pay attention whether the Kotadeniyawa Police had sufficient evidence to arrest them especially the underage student in connection with the murder and to ascertain whether they were allegedly assaulted by police while in custody.

    best way to stop this nonsense from police, CCTV should be fixed in all police stations to cover all cells.

    Then he must get on with the situation in the country, as he must also read news like any of us...

    The report will say that the police in Kotadeniyawa never arrested these two and the complaint was false.

    Respect you Mr. Illangakoon

    We are waiting to see what kind of action be take against your department officers by you.. Obviously, the police officers are guilty because even if the boy is found guilty for the rape and murder it is not the correct way to punish him. Where is the law? This should be taken further attention. Will see

    How do you prove assault when in police custody. No policeman is going to give evidence against his colleague. They know this well when assaulting an accused.

    Bavani Vishvanathan Monday, 05 October 2015 11:31 AM

    Hope the IGP will do punish the culprits of this case. Or dont know he is just trying to say he will do the right and then put the file under the table to cover the police. Hope as comments mentioned above " you will be the best IGP and pls keep that name and do the needful"

    Yes please be fair-enough to do the right thing. He is a kid and dont spoil his life going behind this foolish laptop pictures.. is he the only lad who was trying to see the nude pictures?

    I certainly agreed with Mason, This investigation, some how will be cover up by the same department. We strongly request Mr. IGP to intervene yourself in this case.
