IGP N.K. Illangakoon has directed the Police Special Investigations Unit (SIU) to investigate allegations levelled against Minister Mervyn Silva and Kelaniya PS Chairman Prasanna Ranaweera.
 
Two petitions which included allegations such as extortion were handed over to the IGP on Friday by two parties representing the Minister and the PS Chairman, police media spokesman Ajith Rohana said.
 
A public row erupted between SLFP Kelaniya Organiser Minister Mervyn Silva and the Kelaniya PS Chairman recently when the PS Chairman and his group accused Minister Silva of  extortion in the Kelaniya area and requested the President to appoint a commission to probe the actions of the controversial Minister.
 
In response the Minister said he had enough evidence to prove that the Chairman was involved in various types of illegal activities and that he would reveal more information against several other members as well.
 
“The SIU normally investigates allegations levelled against police officers. But the IGP can direct the unit to investigate any matter or allegation,” he said.

It was earlier reported that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) took over the investigation to probe the accusations levelled at each other by the two parties from Kelaniya. (Supun Dias)
