The Fundamental Rights petition filed by Senior DIG Ajith Rohana challenging his transfer to Easter Province from Southern Province was today postponed to August 3by the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court two-judge bench comprising Justices Preethi Padman Surasena and Mahinda Samayawardena fixed the petition to be taken up for support on August 3.

In his petition, Senior DIG Ajith Rohana is challenging the malicious, unreasonable, and unjustifiable transfer by Public Security Minister Tiran Alles. He had alleged that the Minister did all these malicious acts to harass him and to protect a particular Senior DIG.
