Tue, Jun 15, 2010, 07:06 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jun 15, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today (15) ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mahinda Balasuriya to immediately arrest a senior police officer in connection with an alleged human smuggling racket.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Champa Janaki Rajaratne had ordered the immediate arrest of a Colombo based DIG in connection with the smuggling racket.

The Magistrate had made the order due to the failure of the high ranking police official to implement an earlier court warrant for the arrest of two persons allegedly involved in the smuggling racket.

The local media has reported that the high ranking police official is a Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) addressed in court as DIG Herath.
