A jeep that was brought down to the country duty-free was impounded by the Police.

The vehicle is said to be owned by former deputy minister – Nishantha Muthuhettigama.

Police say that the vehicle, an Isuzu Bighorn, lacked registration documents. Reports say that he had illegally brought it down on a duty-free basis while he was functioning as the deputy minister of Ports.

Despite being a new model, it had borne an older number and this had triggered doubts. Investigators have now found that the number originally belongs to another vehicle.

The vehicle was stopped for inspection in Galle and was impounded by the officers of the anti-corruption unit in Walana.

It was also revealed that the vehicle was being driven by a police constable attached to the Galle police at the time of the raid. He is said to have worked in the MSD previously.

Upon being questioned, the constable had revealed that the vehicle was owned by Nishantha Muthuhettigama.

Police are also investigating how a policeman is working as a driver while being in the police service.
