Central Province Senior DIG Lalith Pathinayake has informed Kandy DIG Mahinda Dissanayake to initiate an investigation regarding the revelation that two Traffic Police officers on duty allegedly sought a bribe from the son of Public Security Minister Tiran Alles during a traffic stop in the Galagedara area of Kandy last Saturday.

Reportedly, the Minister’s son, enroute to Kandy, was pulled over by the traffic officers for violating traffic rules while overtaking a vehicle. The Minister’s son acknowledged the traffic violation and accepted the issued fine sheet. It was reported that the Minister’s son inquired about the nearest Post Office to pay the fine.

However, the officer writing the fine reportedly informed the Minister’s son that he could avoid going to the Post Office by assisting them. Upon revealing his identity as the son of the Public Security Minister, the Minister’s son insisted on receiving the fine sheet for the committed offence. Subsequently, the officers obtained Rs.1,100 from the Minister’s son to pay the fine and used the Police motorcycle to pay the fine to reach the Post Office, and provided the receipt along with the driver’s licence.

Police information further revealed that the Central Province Senior DIG has informed the Kandy DIG to initiate an investigation, paying special attention to the media reports in this regards published in social media, websites and newspapers.
