PNB Officers guilty of drug related charges deserve death penalty : Ajith Rohana

While condemning the actions of the 18 officers alleged involved in a chain of drug related charges, Senior Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Ajith Rohana today said the guilty parties should be served the capital punishment.

Speaking to media, he said even though the death penalty hasn’t been implemented in the country for a long time these officers if proven guilty should be served the capital punishment as such these officers should be completely removed from the society.

He said the 18 police officials attached to the Police Narcotics Bureau were being investigated by the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) and no bias would be shown towards those officers simply because they were police officers.

“Police officers risk their lives in their battle with the drug syndicate. They have been shot. Among those brave officials, it is disgraceful to see these few officials who tainted the " name of the police" he said.

He said they wished to conclude the investigations as soon as possible and take strict legal action against the guilty parties. (By Thisari Walawege)

    Hello, Gamarala! A life is a right and not a joke. Make statements on what can be done. All these jokers in fancy dress are looking to be politicians.

    Of what use is the capital punishment when there is no implementation of the Death Penalty? Those sentenced to death will serve a few years in prison and then released.

    When you have a Police Force where the majority come from poor family background and don’t have much education to show, then is it a wonder that these people if given a half a chance would risk anything to make money by any crooked way.
