Latheef’s position to be given to Varuna!

Current STF head Senior DIG M.R. Latheef is scheduled to retire and DIG Varuna Jayasundara has been recommended to take on the post as the head of the STF, it is reported.

Jayasundara has been recommended by the current Acting IGP Chandana Wickramaratne and his recommendations have been sent to President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and the National Police Commission.

Meanwhile, the National Police Commission is scheduled to grant their approval today (05) for the recommendation made by the IGP.

DIG Varuna Jayasundara is the senior most officer in the STF and the recent bust of 192 kg of heroin and ten pistols brought to the country by the Dubai underworld last week was carried out under his leadership.
