Colombo (LNW): The Chief Inspector of the Bandarawela Police Station is under a probe over the manner in which he handled the case of a woman who was arrested for allegedly abandoning her infant in a train at the Colombo Fort Railway Station.

Strong concerns were raised over the Bandarawela Chief Inspector’s inappropriate questioning of the mother by welcoming the media into the police station and having her questioned in front of the camera, making her uncomfortable, and letting the scene go public.

Accordingly, the Police Special Investigative Division is carrying out a probe into the CI’s conduct on the orders of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), a statement by the Police Media Division said.

The CI in question will be investigated for the manner in which the suspect was arrested, interrogated and made uncomfortable by disregarding the nature of the investigation, and disregarding the circulars issued by the IGP on cases related to women and children.
