Uva Police Chief To Be Transferred Months Before The Election

Just months before the Uva Provincial Council election, Police headquarters has taken measures to transfer the Police chief of the province. 

Lalith Jayasinghe, senior DIG of Uva and Sabaragamuwa provinces is to be transferred by the Police headquarters , nearly two weeks after the dissolution of the Provincial Council. 

Jayasinghe will be appointed as the DIG of the Northern Province replacing DIG Pujith Jayasundara who will be transferred to the Police headquarters . 

DIG Jagath Abeysirigunwardena is likely to be appointed as the new Police Chief of the Uva province where elections will be held in a few months. Abeysirigunawardena is presently the DIG of the North Western province.

Transfer of the Police Chief of the Uva province just months ahead of the election has raised eye brows of many. When contacted by Asian Mirror,  a spokesman of the Police headquarters said the reasons behind the sudden transfers are "unknown".
