The National Police Commission (NPC) has approved the transfer of Kurunegala Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Kithsiri Jayalath to Trincomalee.
Just recently the NPC had approved a similar proposal to transfer him but later cancelled the approval.
However, today the NPC had approved the transfer.
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had launched an investigation on the DIG over matters related to the ongoing investigation against Dr. Mohamad Shafi who was arrested by the Kurunegala Police over allegations of acquiring assets in a suspicious manner.
Meanwhile, the NPC approved the promotion of SSP Buddhika Siriwardena as the DIG in charge of Kurunegala.
