This young IP even reads confidential documents sent by DIGs to the police chief and interferes in transfers of police officers.
Meanwhile, some of the SSP who have been denied promotion to the rank of acting DIG, as recommended by the NPC, are planning to file a FR petition against the IGP.
The police chief was given a last notice when the NPC met on April 23 to grant them the promotion.
The IGP has objected to the promotion of SSPs Palitha Siriwardena and Gamini Perera.
Siriwardena successfully challenged a remark by the police chief that he would be transferred and later complained to the NPC that he had been investigated in violation of the law.
Perera got a promotion to Jaffna overturned by appealing to the NPC.
