Massive bribe charge: Inspector transferred
Kurunegala SSP Vaas Gunawardena has ordered the transfer of the officer-in-charge of the Kurunegala Special Investigations Bureau over charges of having demanded a Rs.500,000 bribe from an illicit liquor dealer.
The Inspector is alleged to have demanded the bribe to avoid arresting the illicit liquor dealer and instead to produce somebody else in courts. SSP Gunawardena told reporters that an investigation would be held to ascertain whether the Inspector had taken the bribe as alleged.
