Mysterious turn in Matara tax chief assault case

The much-publicised assault on a top official of the Department of Inland Revenue — a case tasked for CID detectives and later probed by a hundred strong Police team -- is being sent back for further inquiry by the Matara Police. They will examine whether the matter could be resolved, like most other assault cases, by the Mediation Board of the area. The Sunday Times learns that the move follows instructions from Police Chief Mahinda Balasuriya.
