Kurunegala DIG  transferred to Puttalam

The National Police Commission (NPC) has approved the transfer of Kurunegala DIG Kithsiri Jayalath to Puttalam police division, according to sources.

Meanwhile, Buddhika Siriwardena has been appointed DIG of Kurunegala for the vacant post of Kithsiri Jayalath.

DIG Jayalath and Superintendent of Police of Kurunegala Division is reportedly facing an internal inquiry into his conduct over what has resulted in a deeply divisive issue following allegations levelled at Dr. Mohamed Shafi of Kurunegala Hospital of allegedly performing non-consensual sterilization on several mothers.
Accordingly, Superintendent of Police of Kurunegala Division has also been transferred to Kantale.
