IGP Pujith Jayasundera yesterday said errant OICs engaged in illegal activities and had incurred the wrath of the public had been transferred with immediate effect.

The police Chief said disciplinary action would be instituted against the errant cops once the investigations were completed. He said they had been reported to the National Police Commission as well.

 "There were several complaints from the public against OICs engaging in illegal activities and following a special investigation the decision to transfer them was taken," the IGP said.

Jayasundera said the appointment and transfers of OICs had been effected without any political considerations and no promotions or positions had been given to those who came through the back door.
