IGP informed to resign?

President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has informed IGP Pujith Jayasundara to resign from his post within two weeks, media reports say.

It is said that the decision is based on the recent, heavy criticism against the IGP.

However, upon contacting the Presidential Media Unit for a clarification, the PMU denied that the president issued such a directive.

Also, a highly placed official of the PM office said they are yet to learn that the IGP has been informed as such.
