Mr. Indra de Silva was sworn in as Sri Lanka's new Inspector General of Police (IGP) at an official function held at the Police headquarters, Monday. He will function as the IGP till his retirement in February next year, police sources said.

The President Ms Chandrika Kumaratunge appointed Mr.Indra de Silva as acting IGP when the post fell vacant due when Mr.T.E.Anandarajah retired on October 17.

Controversy arose when the recommendation by the President to confirm Mr.Indra de Silva in the IGP post was rejected by the Constitutional Council.

However, the Constitutional Council at its meeting held on December 18 accepted request of the President and confirmed Mr.Indra de Silva as new IGP.

Mr.Tuyalage Indrasiri de Silva joined the Sri Lanka Police Force in December 1971 as an Assistant Superintendent of Police and had served in many parts of the country. As a Superintendent of Police he had served in Vavuniya, Police Higher Training Institute and Director, Police Headquarters. He was promoted to the rank of senior Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2000 and served in this capacity in the provinces of Uva, Western and Sabragamuwa. Later became the head of the administrative division of the Police Headquarters.

Mr.Indra de Silva who obtained his BA degree from Peradeniya University is currently also serving as a lecturer in the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute and a member of the Steering Committee of the National Integration Programme.
