Four police officers including the OIC of Hambantota police had been transferred pending an inquiry into the disappearance of a youth who was in police custody over a theft he allegedly involved in.
The 20-year-old youth had been arrested along with two more suspects in connection with a paddy theft in Bandagiriya, Hambantota a few days ago.
He was reported missing since September 05, while being detained by the police.
One of the other two suspects had been admitted to the Hambantota Hospital after being allegedly assaulted by the police during detention. The third suspect had been released by the police, it was reported.
Meanwhile, the police had told the family of Gayashan that he had fled from the cell.
However, the family members today filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission over the disappearance of Gayashan and charged that the police was behind the disappearance.
They charged that the youth had been already beaten up by the police by the time he was arrested.
The police blew their trumpet very loud when they solved the case on the Businessmans assassination. Now we would like to see these self glorifying cops coming forward to solve this case as well. via DM Android App

So much screaming about why all Sri Lankans should help Mother Lanka. Notorious instances like these puts off most willing and able for ever.

Why do OIC's and PC's get transferred when they are accused of misconduct such as this one? So that they can repeat same in a different area? They should be suspended not transferred till the inquiry is over.

Good Governance is just a slogan for the politicians. It is NOT for the people, who as before are getting beaten by the police, disappear and probably being murdered as well.
