Former Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Wanduramba Police, IP Panangala Liyanage Keerthisinghe, who had been given orders to vacate his post, was reinstated yesterday following an appeal made to the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

Accordingly, IP Keerthisinghe has been reinstated in his post with effect from yesterday (January 24). IP Keerthisinghe had been charge-sheeted for abetting former Deputy Minister Muthuhettigama to take away the suspects arrested for allegedly torching the stage erected for a meeting of common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena in Wanduramba, Galle during the presidential election period.

The Inspector had earlier announced his resignation as he claimed that he was unable to carry out his duties due to political interference.
