Nalaka de Silva kept in isolation Featured

Remanded former DIG of the TID Nalaka de Silva is being kept in isolation at Welikada Prison, say prison sources.

According to procedures, he should have been sent to Magazine Prison, but he was sent to Welikada in consideration of his safety, the sources say.

A prison hospital doctor and an ambulance had already been at the prison when de Silva arrived at the prison last night, and despite an examination found his not having any illness, the remand prisoner was recommended to be sent to hospital.

This caused a heated exchange of words between the doctor and the prison officials, and the latter has left later in the ambulance.
