The Minister stated that a suspect being died in police custody will not make up for the loss of the Police Constable’s life.
 
He also said that this does not fall in line with good governance.
 
The Chairman of the Office of Missing Persons President Counsel Saliya Peiris had also said that an independent investigation should be carried out into deaths of suspects while in police custody.
