More than 60 policemen attached to the Horana, Moragahahena and Bandaragama police stations have been transferred immediately over a number of incidents involving delays in investigations, Police Headquarters said today.

They said these 63 policemen had been serving in these police stations for more than three years and that had made it difficult for them  to conduct their duties.

During the past three years a number of incidents especially involving shootings, snatching of gold chains and harassment on women were reported but the policemen had been reluctant to probe the allegations and arrest those involved.

After a prolonged inquiry the department took steps under the direction of IGP N.K Illangakone to transfer them to police stations within the Western Province. (Supun Dias)

    Come on, let them be where they are. They are just following the trend in a Banana Republic.

    Is this truly a transfer for cause OR moved into strategic places for purpose?

    Police discretion should not be interfered with.. They should be allowed to do their duty properly.. Even police commission should not pass anything that may damage the discretion..

    Transferring itself is not enough for not carrying out critical duties!

    They should be given proper guidance and directions by their immediate supervisors, SI , IP , ASP ......

    They would have done their duties if they were given a free hand to perform what they are expected to do but things are different in this country where they are controlled by politicians of the area which makes them reluctant to move against culprits who have political protection.

    The maximum punishment a cop can get for failing to perform his duties is a transfer, so why worry.

    Hats off to you IG Police... Stern action was always the need of the day to teach them cops a lesson. Expecting more.
