The police officer, who was interdicted from service for assaulting a woman at the Ratnapura town, has been reinstated with immediate effect.

Police media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana told our news team that the police officer concerned has been attached to the Awissawela police station.

A video footage of a police officer assaulting a woman near the Ratnapura town main bus stand was first published through via face-book social networking website.
