Three police officers were arrested in Trincomalee for being allegedly involved in the disappearance of three people in 2008.

The CID which conducted investigations into the disappearance of a woman and two others on July 1, 2008 at Pimburugaspitiya in Gomarankadawala made the arrest.

Those arrested included an Inspector attached to the Thambalagamuwa police, a Sergeant attached to the Anuradhapura Uda Maluwa Police and a police constable attached to the Seru Nuwara Police.

They were reported to have been on duty at the Pamburugaspitiya police checkpoint at the time of the disappearances.

The arrest was carried out after the relatives of the disappeared made a complaint to the police.

The suspects had been summoned to the Trincomalee police station and arrested by the CID detectives. They were produced at the Trincomalee Magistrate’s Courts yesterday. (Athula Bandara)
