A police officer who issued a charge sheet to a Deputy Minister on the Southern Expressway on May 20 was reported to have been assaulted by a group of men at the 20 acre area in Bombuwala near the Dodangoda entry point last night while he was driving to work.
The police officer was attached to the Kottawa Expressway police unit and was on his way for duty in his car when the incident occurred.
Police said his car had been blocked by a group of men who arrived in a cab and assaulted him after dragging him out of the car. His car was also set on fire by them.
The police officer was admitted to the Nagoda Hospital.(Sunil Katriarachchi)

IGP is most respected officer in his service. politicians & politicized administration officers are playing the foul game. Police administration not under his administration.Good example is police spokesman.

At least its good to see a police officer issuing a charge sheet to a ruling party politico.

Do not believe false stories.Wait until the truth comes out from the police spokesman.

Don't be surprised if the victim later denies that he was attacked, just like the army officer (not) attacked by a politico's son a few years ago.

Our ministerial types. We elected them. We have got what we deserve. In UK a Chief Constable equivalent of DIG and Prince Charles too had been tickets for violation of traffic regulations. via DM iPad app

May be the PC wouldve hit himself and set his car on fire. Our innocent and country loving ministers would never do such a thing. via DM iPad app

Highway should be petroled by officers from Slave I island police. They will remove the eyes of wrong doers and punish them before courts. via DM Android App

Mr IGP, over to you. You couldn't arrest those who assaulted the UNP MP's; will you turn a blind eye to this one too?

Good for the Police to learn lessons. After all they were overzelously serving the government politicians more than necessary. Let it be known that a Politician is only concerned about his pound of flesh and nothing else.

NAME THE DEPUTY MINISTER!
bobby Saturday, 31 May 2014 12:11 PM
Will these culprits be taken to show hidden weapons? I think HELL NO LOL
citizen Saturday, 31 May 2014 12:16 PM
the public should not allow this. the public should stone those who assaulted this police officer
Cobra Sunday, 01 June 2014 02:07 PM
Another case that will never be solved and the culprits brought to book!
Seyed Saturday, 31 May 2014 12:39 PM
Pathetic reporting by DM. Afraid to mention the name of deputy minister. Similarly a news item above says a 'leading school in Kollupitiya' but DM would not name the school. Freedom of expression and modern journalism has developed every where in the world but Sri Lankan journalists are still stuck in 19th centuary.

This is the minimum respect can be expected by our local Police department.

Take the Deputy Minister to a lonely spot in search of his gang and do the normal thing.

Our rulers no longer blush at their misdeeds and have lost the capacity for shame.
