Inspector Niyomal Rangajeewa of the Police Narcotic Bureau was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today in connection with the Welikada Prison riot in 2012.

At least 27 prison inmates were killed and several others were injured in clashes between the inmates and guards at the Welikada prison in November 2012.

Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said the CID who is investigating the incident on the instructions of the IGP Pujith Jayasundara had arrested IP Rangajeewa in connection with the incident.

IP Rangajeewa was injured in a shootout with an armed gang during a raid in Piliyandala last year. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    If you can find one single honest cop in the Sri Lanka Police, I will remove all my teeth.

    We thought that he is a honest law enforcement officer ?

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 29 March 2018 09:16 AM

    Nowhere in the Sri Lanka State Service can one find honesty. This is also the reason this country has gone to the dogs.
