More than 600 police officers including 110 police officers attached to the Valachchenai Police station were transferred with immediate effect, Police Spokesperson SP Prashantha Jayakody said.
“These men are being transferred back to their original police stations since the end of their operational duties in the North and East,” the police spokesperson said. He denied allegations that these transfers were politically motivated.
