Five underworld leaders protecting a minister

17 July 2018 06:27 am - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A senior police officer said that five underworld leaders whom the police are looking to arrest have become the private bodyguards of a minister.

He said the special police squad which is engaged in combating underworld activities has the photos of these persons with the minister as well. According to him, there is a policeman who is interdicted due to close association with the underworld gangs. One leader had been shot dead recently due to a conflict with the police.

The minister concerned is safeguarding these underworld leaders and undue influence had been exerted on the police to free them when some suspects had been arrested due to the possession of cannabis etc. This minister had informed the police to release some suspects who had been arrested with 500 grammes of Kerala ganja recently.

    Then arrest the minister and charge him for obstructing justice. If the media has the evidence, they should reveal the name, the people have a right to know.

    Do you think that the Sri Lankan police have so much guts?

    This is a result of Sri Lankans electing the wrong to rule the country. May god save this country.

    Gods cannot save the country when fools in this country are electing day light robbers to rule.

    So what you say is that police is unable to act due to politicians. Shame on you. Simply a spineless force. If you can't, give that information to the armed forces. They may be able to do something. Even a white van would help.

    “Behind the facade of elected government are a bunch of corporate controlled gangsters running the country.”

    IGP should arrest the minister for harbouring these people. If he cannot, resign and give that position to a person who can do it.

    Suneth Perera Tuesday, 17 July 2018 05:27 PM

    Leaders of this country like president, Renil and Mahinda should immediately disassociate with these ministers and MPs and show the people their policies. Take over all powers from them. Otherwise people will punish like what happen to Mahinda in 2015.

    Percy Tuesday, 17 July 2018 05:37 PM

    Dont arrest them and waste time and public money, you already who it is and where they are. Just find an excuse to shoot them dead the same way you shot the gangster who shot a policeman in the Matara robbery. Are you waiting till one of your people are killed by them to find an excuse?
