Army Intelligence officer, Major Chandana Pradeep, who was found “guilty” by the Army’s Court of Inquiry, was transferred from the Military Intelligence Corps yesterday.
“He was transferred to a shadow unit with effect from yesterday,” a senior military official told Colombo Telegraph.
The decision has been taken after the investigation report of the Army’s Court of Inquiry, appointed to probe the alleged brawl between the Army Major and a government Minister’s son Malaka Silva at JAIC Hilton,Colombo, revealed that the Major had provided security to a former casino owner businessman Nalin Fonseka at the time of the incident using his service weapon unlawfully. Major Pradeep was in charge of the Sri Lanka Army’s Colombo-South Intelligence wing.
