Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Vavuniya Police U.K. Dissanayake, who was arrested on charges of illegal treasure hunting, was further remanded till September 30 by Vavuniya Magistrate today.
He was arrested after surrendered to police on September 19.
DIG Dissanayake was allegedly involved in illegal treasure hunting in Vavuniya.
The Police earlier said seven suspects, including four civilians and three Police officers attached to the said DIG’s office had already been arrested following investigations and added the DIG was transferred to the Eastern Province in order to maintain the credibility of investigations.
If DIGs are implicated in such crimes, its very clear to what extent the Police is corrupted.
