Shani appointed despite IGP’s objections

The appointment of SSP Shani Abeysekara as director of the CID was approved 10 to nine when the police commission met yesterday (07). Only IGP Pujith Jayasundara objected.


Jayasundara has said that president Maithripala Sirisena has instructed him to appoint SSP Mevan Silva to the position.

But, the president says the IGP has recommended him that Silva should be appointed, sources say.
