Eighteen 18 police officers have lost their lives in 78 road accidents this year, Public Security Minister Sarath Weerasekera said.

He said 293 police officers were injured during road mishaps while on duty last year, in which 28 of whom had died.

Minister Weerasekera said after an event in Kalutara that the police officers on duty are under pressure, but he would not approve some activities of those policemen such as the incident at Pannipitiya where a traffic policeman was attacking a lorry driver.

The minister said that public should also understand the role and pressure situations handled by the policemen.(DSB)

    Sarath Weerasekara, If you want keep crying for the Police, but the people of this country have no sympathy or respect for these thugs in uniform.

    Mister over 400 people also died during this period .. every life is valuable . You are the minister of national security not the minister of police security . Once again think before you open your mouth .

    Only! What about the fairy tale about a beheaded lady and a hanging cop. It was fishy wasn't it.

    the civilians who died on road accidents are also human beings - more humane that your policeman - why only cry for policeman. do not try to make a case to free the police thug - dismissal is the only solution - which will serve as lesson to all other policeman -or should I say "POLICE OFFICERS"
