Five police officers including the former OIC of the Agaliya Police Post in Elpitiya have been arrested in connection to the disappearance of a suspect while in police custody.

Police Media Spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana said that the police officers were arrested following an investigation conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department.

Addressing a media briefing on Thursday, SSP Rohana said that the police officers are being interrogated following a twenty-four hour detention order issued by the Colombo Chief Magistrate.

The missing suspect is reportedly a forty-two year old resident of the Divithura area in Baddegama.

SSP Rohana noted that the CID launched investigations into the suspect’s disappearance after a complaint was lodged by his relatives to the Public Assistance Centre.
