More than 20 police personnel attached to the Peliyagoda Crime Division were transferred with immediate effect in connection with the case where a constable attached to the unit was arrested by the STF last month on charges of selling heroin.

The Peliyagoda Crime Division, a special unit operating under the Western Province North DIG L.G. Kularatne came into the limelight after the constable was nabbed selling heroin to Police Special Task Force officers acting as decoys in a sting operation on June 15.

A senior police officer said that soon after an inquiry, the DIG took immediate steps to transfer some 20 officers who had completed more than two years in the unit.

They were replaced by personnel with a unsullied service record drawn from the surrounding stations and units.

In the wake of the constable's arrest, evidence had revealed that two more police personnel were linked to the trafficking in heroin. The narcotics had been siphoned off from various raids and detections carried out by the unit.

The senior officer said the transfer of officers who had remained for in particular unit for a long period was essential to discourage unlawful activities they might be led to commit. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    Good only up to a point. The senior officer is guilty for not checking confiscated stock position. There should be regular chek otherwise why have senior administrative officers - they are guilty of neglect.

    In India, some criminal officers replaced confiscated gold and currency notes with the imitated one and by the time the official discovered it they moved out of the country. Back to this case, the arrested cops could have done the same.

    Initially arrest the politicians, MPs, Ministers who are the major culprits in narcotic trade. Vella Suda has named all the people in the trade. Since some VVIPs are involved, the Govt does not want to take action: but continue to talk lofty ideals.

    Police officers arrested but all the politicians, MPs, ministers who are major culprits in this narcotic syndicate are at home enjoying the life. Remember there will be many more police officers and ordinary people will take to this business, unless it is cleaned up from top to bottom.

    The situation will become worse if the MR gang will come to politics.

    Why transfer? All must be suspended pending inquiry. The officers who are supposed maintain law and order are ensuring that there are no law and order. Curruption from all front.

    This is good but unfortunately the top officers in charge have neglected their duty in not checking regularly of confiscated stocks. Like in a company, stocks are under someones charge and the senior officer must check at least every three months.Usual haalmessas and the sharks story.
