The National Police Commission (NPC) has requested the Acting IGP to nominate a female Police Officer to the post of Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) for the first time in the history of the Sri Lanka Police.

NPC Secretary Nishantha Weerasinghe told Daily Mirror that they were yet to receive the nominated name from the Acting IGP.

It was reported that SSP Bimsani Jasinghaarachchi attached to the Child and Women Bureau of the Department of Police has been reportedly selected as the senior-most female Police officer from among the nominated names.

SSP Premila Dhiwakara was the first female officer to hold a high post in the Department of Police. She was the first female officer to join the Police service and retired while holding the post of SSP. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Men and Women are equal to each other in value and respect, however the nature played some tricks and has designed both the sexes, physically and mentally,not to be identical. Who are we to go against the nature. Neither a man can give birth to child nor a woman can make measured decisions in a life or death situation during her mensural cycle.

    Finally. It is about time women get more powerful positions in society. This should not be news at all. In developped countries it is normal.

    The west is pushing their liberal agendas in Sri Lanka for aid and access, We cannot let gays and feminists take root in Sri Lanka
