A writ of mandamus was filed before the Court of Appeal yesterday (01st), against the Inspector General of Police (IGP) by the attorneys-at-law in support of the victim’s family of Embilipitiya death.

Embilipitiya Magistrate recently ordered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to arrest Police officers including former ASP of the Embilipitiya Division, D.W.C. Dharmaratne and HQI, Dinendra Dias, in connection to the case.

However, no policeman has been seized six days after the Court order.

Attorney-at-Law Udul Premaratne accused the IGP for providing an unusual support and security. The ASP, who has been ordered to be arrested, is transferred to Narahenpita traffic division attached to the Police HQ.

Police Media Spokesperson, ASP Ruwan Gunasekera stated that the CID continues their investigations upon the advice of the Attorney General regarding the issue, and therefore appropriate measures will be taken at right time.
