The director-general of the National Zoological Department Ishani Wickramasinghe stepped down from his post immediate effect.
A close ally of the ruling UPFA alliance who played a leading role to bring the Rajapaksa government to power sent her resignation letter to the president citing personal reasons.
However informed sources said that the recent scandal of infamous VVIP persons who unlawfully acquired tamed elephants led her to resign.
During the last good governance government time, a court case has filed against those who acquired tamed elephants unlawfully. However, recently the Couret ordered the cubs who were orphaned in the zoological department to release them to the previous owners.
