President Abdulla Yameen held a sudden meeting with top officials of Maldives Police Service on Sunday.
There have not been any details as of yet of the meeting which took place at Police Headquarters for an hour on Sunday morning. Police are also yet to comment on the issue.
Reporters who arrived on scene to cover the meeting were ordered to retreat beyond the Republic Square and, thus, were unable to reach the president for comment.
The last time President Yameen personally met with top officials at Police was amidst the turmoil that followed the blast aboard the presidential speedboat in September 2015.
