Former director of Criminal Investigation Department senior Police Superintendent Shani Abeysekara's services have been suspended effective from today (07) by the National Police Commission.
The suspension of service was due to the telephone conversation carried out with MP Ranjan Ramanayake that has been supposedly exposed.
Acting IGP C.D. Wickramaratne has instructed to submit a report pertaining to the allegations leveled against Abeysekara within two weeks period of time.
Abeysekara who served as the director of the CID was transferred as a personal assistant to Galle DIG in the aftermath of the presidential election.
