Retired DIG to be probed for child sexual abuse
Jul 21, 2017

A retired DIG, Keerthi Silva, is due to be summoned to the women and children’s bureau in Nugegoda to investigate a child sexual abuse charge against him, say bureau sources.

A young girl has complained that Silva had abused her for a long period when she was underage, and after it was exposed to her family, the retired policeman had given her a land and a house to settle the matter.

Her complaint follows Silva’s having expelled her from the house recently.

He had to retire from service over a treasure hunting accusation while he was in charge of the eastern region, and there are many more incidents involving him, police sources add
