Kosgama OIC interdicted

2013 Oct 21

The Officer In Charge (OIC) of the Kosgama police station, Thilina Hettiarachi, has been interdicted with immediate effect, the police media unit said today.

According to the police media unit, the OIC was suspended after he had failed to follow the correct procedure when releasing a group of suspects on police bail.

The nine suspects had been arrested on the charge of digging for treasure illegally. The suspects were produced before the Kosgama police.

However the OIC had released them on police bail without producing them in Court. (Colombo Gazette)
