The government said that there is no secret police operating in Sri Lanka as claimed by some sections.

In an interview with an Australian newsagency Sri Lankan High Commission in Australia, Thisara Samarasinghe said "there's a police force and other elements of the police force which conduct criminal investigations."

Speaking on the alleged abduction of the JVP dissident leader Kumar Gunaratnam, Samarasinghe said that he has not been detained by Sri Lankan authorities. He has never been arrested nor taken away by anybody from the Government, Samarasinghe added.

    The Govt trying too hard overexplaining and thus making them a laughing stock in front of the whole world.

    Banda Thursday, 12 April 2012 10:48 AM

    Well, if you calim this was not by the Govt, can you produce the people behind the abduction, I am sure our poilce can find this out.

    Whoever do this,They still live in 19th century...and don't want to accept the freedom, self respect and peoples rights to believe or act on what they believe.
    We'll see abductions everyday here and if government not behind these then it is their responsibility to catch whoever behind these ghost activities.
    Wake up this is 21st century and you can't hide anything...every thing is going to be shared in seconds....

    Please we are tired of your lame excuses!
    Everybody knows the government was behind this incident and all other incidents of abduction in SL.

    maru Saturday, 14 April 2012 05:44 AM

    Why can't catch the white van still??

    fedup Friday, 13 April 2012 11:21 AM

    yes, you are truly representing your president!

    Lanka Thursday, 12 April 2012 11:31 PM

    Absolutely correct. Our people do not think the reality till they face the danger.

    Lanka Friday, 13 April 2012 12:06 AM

    If people are abducted like this without knowing the government it means there is no proper rules and administration system in the country. Why gov is silent and does not catch the people who are doing these abductions it proves the incapability of the government.

    Lanka Friday, 13 April 2012 12:08 AM

    really good one

    Adam & Eve Friday, 13 April 2012 11:45 AM

    When I was a kid my mother used to relate fairy tails and I did believe the stories. As we become adults we know the truth. As such do not relate fairy tails to adults, please.

    Real peace Thursday, 12 April 2012 09:53 AM

    FRANNY Thursday, 12 April 2012 10:33 AM

    Good what about the White Van !

    hello Thursday, 12 April 2012 10:23 AM

    Yes that's right. Only army officers in civilian clothes.

    wonderboy Thursday, 12 April 2012 10:27 AM

    Police secret or not will take a suspect and bring him to court if thought guilty. In Sri Lanka we don't have such police. We only have men coming in white vans. What would you call them? Secret Army men?
