Disciplinary action against DIG Deshabandu

It is reported that disciplinary action is being taken against Senior DIG in charge of Colombo District Deshabandu Tennakoon due to the internal opposition of the government regarding the attack on the protesters of the Front Line Socialist Party in Kollupitiya.

It has been reported that the other police officers involved have been quarantined as an initial step.

In the case of Roshen Chanaka, who was killed in a police shooting at the Katunayaka Trade Zone protest earlier, the then IGP Mahinda Balasuriya was sent on compulsory leave.

However, then Rajapakse government later granted him an ambassador post in diplomatic services
