    Mr. IGP, when you became the IG Police, we sincerely thought that you will least make an genuine attempt to change the infamous behavior of the SL Police and if failed, you will resign as a here. No we are mistaken. You are also another police puppet. Shameful.

    Funny how the wheel of (in)justice slows down when there are politicos involved.

    Well done police.. You have done good job. You will do better if politicians do not interfere with police.

    Hats off to our Police. Despite all the harsh comments about them they are doing a wonderful job. We are indeed proud of them.

    Its time that in Sri Lanka too (as in all civilized countries), that no one should be above the law. Everyone must be subjected to the same laws of the country without favor or prejudice.

    Most of the people go with the flow and pass comments condemning the Police.. Just imagine a Society without the Police presence, sure it will be a total mess. We must hats off to Sri Lanka Police..they are the most dedicated to establish the rule of the law. we should at least appreciate their effort even though some forces trying hinder their duty. Police officer is always in a cross fire..

    Seriously, can these jokers walk with their heads held high? Whom is he trying to fool?
    Does he think that we are a nation of morons?

    if police does not have political pressure. Why police did not arrest them earliar. People are very interligent in the country. They can not pool.

    MOHAMED ASFAR Tuesday, 13 March 2012 07:32 AM

    good job sir. well done. but all expect little more. of course the quality of our police force is improving very faster compared to sri lankan standards. i have seen how most of of the police officers are working more than 15 hours a day without any overtime. hats off. ignore the negative comments.
