Wildlife Minister Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka yesterday said that the Police would not be able to eradicate the underworld by resorting to third grade and futile methods.

Speaking to the media after visiting Bakamuna and Bambulla, where elephant issues were reported, the Field Marshal said some Police officers in his electorate reportedly assault innocent people, file court cases against innocent people after planting drug packets and also demand for ransoms.

“Even yesterday, a child from my area had been taken by the Police and had put chili powder in the child’s eyes.

“His head had been covered with a polythene bag before beating him after hanging him. These types of methods cannot be used to curb the underworld,” he said.

He said the Police should act in an honest manner to control the underworld.

“Curbing the underworld is not an impossible task if done properly. However, the law shouldn't be taken to people’s hands.

“Underworld related issues are not under my purview. We will support the Law and Order Minister and Deputy Minister,” he said.

    he may have his weaknesses. But to label him as "useless", is simply a useless and stupid exercise.

    If Minister Fonseka has evidence of such abuse. He should make a proper formal complaint to higher authorities in the police to investigate and punish the perpetrators.Just taking about police brutality will not solve the problem, unless he is just trying to score points in the political game.

    Building people trust and witness protection is very important to get rid of underworld / drug dealers. For people to trust, Police/ authorities should show they are trust worthy.

    Exactly true, this what happened when a A/L student and Kondaya were arrested forced to accept whereas the actual murderer was Kondaya's brother. They frame to close the case which are under pressure.

    Police make too many innocent mistakes. Sometime back even the IG made a similar mistake
