Probe into cops’ chat with Kanjipani Imran at CCD

Colombo DIG Champika Siriwardena has launched an investigation into an incident where two police officers were found conversing with drug kingpin Kanjipani Imran in a convivial mood, while he is in detention at the Colombo Crime Division.

This follows the release of a video clip containing the conversation between the two police officers and the drug kingpin to the media by Sinhale Ravaya General Secretary Ven. Magalkande Sudantha Thera recently. Kanjipani Imran is alleged to have engaged in drug racketeering and masterminded several contract killings from his hideout in Dubai. After being arrested by Dubai Police along with Makandure Madush, he was extradited about four months ago. Although he had been detained and questioned by the Crime Division for over 100 days under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, no vital information had been elicited from him so far about any weapons or about how he amassed his wealth.
