Allegations have been levelled at SDIG Ranmal Kodithuwakku over torturing and sexually abusing a person to who the SDIG assaulted on the road.

According to a video footage circulated on social media recently, SDIG Kodithuwakku and few police officers were seen assaulting a driver on the road. After severe criticisms, the SDIG was transferred to Police Medical Services and Welfare Division.

In a letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, a reputed law firm on behalf of the said driver alleged that the latter was taken to the Kiriella Police Station following the road incident and was tortured inside a room.

The letter claimed that that their client was stripped naked and forced to kneel down and the SDIG then assaulted the driver in the presence of two officers. Moreover, the firm claimed that their client was also sexually assaulted and photographed being naked.

“We are instructed that our Client has been grossly assaulted, physically, and sexually tortured and harassed by the above mentioned Mr. Ranmal Kodituwakku, Senior Deputy Inspector General of Police (“SDIG”) and two other officers of the Sri Lanka Police Force who have been assigned for duty to the said SDIG,” the letter said.

The driver was released from the police station with several requests including not to circulate any video footage related to the assault and not to go to a hospitals to check injuries.

However, on being released their client was produced at the Kiriella Rural Hospital where his injuries were inspected. The medical Officer at the hospital had also filled a Medical Legal Report form.
