Police said that even though the State of Emergency was not extended, investigations in to the Easter Sunday attacks as well as action against detained terrorist suspects will not be affected.

Secretary of Defence Retired General Shantha Kottegoda yesterday said that the state of emergency was not extended considering that the security situation in the country had improved.

Meanwhile, President Maithripala Sirisena issued an extraordinary gazette permitting the deployment of the Armed Forces to ensure public security across the island even though the State of Emergency has not been extended.

This was as per powers vested with the President under the Public Security Ordinance.

Meanwhile, Police Media Spokesperson SP Ruwan Gunasekara said that investigations will continue uninterruptedly.
