Two Police Special Task Force officers, attached to the Jaffna STF camp, were arrested a short while ago in connection with the shooting incident at Ariyalai in Jaffna, the Police said.

They said the STF officers were arrested by the Crimes Investigation Division officers.

The suspects were identified as Sub Inspector Mallawaarachchige Pradeep Nishantha and Constable Ratnayake Mudiyanselage Indika Pushpa Kumara.

The suspects would be produced before the Jaffna Magistrate for identification parade today.
The suspects were allegedly involved in the shooting incident at Ariyalai after they arrived on a motorcycle and killing a 24-year-old man on October 22.

After the shooting, the suspects had fled the scene.

Jaffna Police conducted investigations and the case was later handed over to the CID by the DIG Pujith Jayasundara for further investigations on October 28. (Chaturanga Padeep)

    The Tamil Politicians did the same hiding when the Indian Army killed thousands of Tamils.

    Good show. Now take action according to the law.

    I can recall from the 1970s the Jaffna Police has always been corrupt and outside the law in their behaviour.It all started with a Tamil police Superintendent in the 70s.At that time the government did not take any action but now as we can see the government is responding quickly and efficiently.Good work by the CID sent from Colombo.

    I too remember the corrupt Tamil Police Superintendent in Jaffna in the 1970s.

    Comeon guys. Come out of this racial thinking. If it's police, look it as Sri Lanka Police. Implement the law for everyone.

    It's not just Jaffna police. The whole police is corrupt. After all it's the same department and culture all over the country.

    Mandayan Saturday, 04 November 2017 07:40 PM

    Yes, the Police force f Jaffna since 1970's was the reason for all issues the country faced and the reason for the birth of various moments to take up arms. Shooting and killing at the Tamil language research conference in 1972 and burning of Jaffna library in 1981 are the tips of the iceberg. The IGP should be commented for action he takes today.

    What is the definition of a "nice person". That's not the problem. It's the organisational culture. That needs to change.
