Bribery sleuths yesterday arrested Officer In Charge of the Wellawatte police Chief Inspector Uditha Weerasekara on a charge of bribery.

SSP Neville Guruge, Director Investigations of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption, confirmed the incident.

Acting on a complaint that the OIC was obtaining valuable articles on the promise of various favours, from the residents in the area, mostly Tamils engaged in the construction field, bribery sleuths arrested the suspect, he said.

Among the items he has allegedly obtained are electrical appliances and a Home Theatre.He had also got them to rennovate his official quarters with new floor tiles and air conditioned his office room.

An official said that acts of this nature is a severe threat to the national security as even the LTTE could bribe them and get done anything they want.

Weerasekara has served as the OIC of the particular police station only for a period of around one month the sources said.

The suspect was to be produced before the Chief Magistrate Colombo.
