COLOMBO (Citizen) - DIG Bimshani Jasinghaarachchi from the Child and Women Bureau of the Department of Police assumed duties as the first female Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) of the Sri Lanka Police yesterday (October 13).

14 SSPs have lodged a complaint with the National Police Commission against this appointment. The appointment follows NPC Commissioner Savithri Wijesekara’s assurance a few months ago that once the female SSPs who had just been appointed at the time fulfilled the relevant criteria, one or two of them could be promoted to the rank of DIG.
