    Transferring is model not to punish them. If they had supported this crime, they should be kicked out of the police and further remanded as suspects.

    Police officers on duty during abduction doesn't mean much. How did the 15 officers become an accessory to this crime shall be published to determine the required punishment. Relocating to Hikkaduwa from Matara is like getting a promotion.
