Sri Lanka Police today launched a website to lodge complaints about lost or stolen mobile phones, Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said.

He said the new website was launched under the instruction of IGP Pujith Jayasundara.

“About 800 to 1000 complaints about lost or stolen mobile phones are reported daily. If anyone had lost or had their phones stolen they can instantly complain through the new website. The complaint will be forwarded to the police stations, Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) and respective mobile companies," he said.

More than 24 million mobile phones were used in the country.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Hmmmm....or a very nice way of linking your IMEI number to your phone number, and there on to you. Nice way to capture some very personal data dont you think?

    Why can't the Mobile companies make those inactive or disable. Because they have the Serial number.

    The site is not encrypted, any hacker can easily steal the data entered on the site.. website must've been developed by a school goer who's trying out his skills

    How about a website to report all the mutts who use their phones whilst driving or for that matter riding motorcycles?

    Anyway, the Sri Lanka Police have not guts to handle a complaint against a rich or a powerful person. We don't have the confidence that they would act properly on such small issues. Even the CID is a incapable department now.
