The Law and Order and State Administration Minister Ranjith Maddumabandara had issued recommendation to the Police Commission today (17) to interdict DIG Nalaka Silva who has been implicated in a conspiracy to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

The Minister’s recommendation bearing the signature of the Law and Order Ministry Secretary Padmasiri Jayamanne was sent to the National Police Commission.

Meanwhile, Nalaka Silva has been summoned to the CID tomorrow (18) morning.

Although he was summoned to the CID yesterday, he had notified the CID that he was unable to do so due to his child’s illness.

Therefore, he has been asked through the Cinnamon Gardens Police to report to the CID tomorrow.

He has been summoned in connection with the ongoing investigations regarding the alleged plot to assassinate the President and former defence secretary.
