The National Police Commission (NPC) has called for a report from the Acting IGP over the possibility of removing the CID from investigating Dr. Mohammed Shafi’s case and hand it over to the Police Special Investigation Unit (SIU).  

Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said an attorney had lodged a complaint with the NPC stating that investigations carried out by the CID against Dr. Shafi should be withdrawn.
“The lawyer had requested in the complaint that the investigations should be handed over to a Special Investigation Unit which should comprise police teams from the CID, the Kurunegala Police and the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD),” SP Gunasekera said.  


Accordingly, he said the NPC had inquired from the Acting IGP about the possibility of handing over the investigations to the SIU.   


The Acting IGP in return had called for a report from the SIU to inform him about the possibility.  


The spokesman said the police will inform the NPC about their decision today (19).  


Meanwhile, another source said that it was not possible to withdraw the investigations from the CID.  


The 42-year-old doctor attached to the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital was arrested on May 24 and was later handed over to the CID to conduct an investigation into illegal sterilisation surgeries allegedly performed by him. He had been remanded till July 25.
