Senior Deputy Inspector General of Police (SDIG) of the Southern Province Ajith Rohana has stated that he would not abide by the recent transfer order made by the Ministry of Public Security, as he is not bound to do so.
In a letter to the Ministry’s Secretary, SDIG Ajith Rohana highlighted that the relevant order was neither issued by the National Police Commission, nor with their approval, thereby making it both illegal and unconstitutional.

“The minister does all these malicious acts to harass us and protect one SDIG,” he has noted.
