The police commenced a special operation to combat drug trafficking and drug related offences today, police Chief Mahinda Balasuriya said
 

Special teams from each police station will be recruited to undertake the operations against drug kingpins in the area.
 

We will be going after the suspects who are involved in the drug business. Addicts will also be taken into account, but if the distributions of drugs are halted to a certain extent the number of addicts will also reduce, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mahinda Balasuriya said

    You only need to take action against your own men in uniform! They are the biggest culprits!

    Suba Wednesday, 13 October 2010 01:59 PM

    When will the Police take action against errant cops?

    Dirty Harry Wednesday, 13 October 2010 02:09 PM

    Well, well, the IGP is a very busy man these days. Good for him if all his plans bear fruit. We hope so.

    Your a joke to the nation.... you will catch all the small timers and parade them when the big fish will be happily swim away, Do you have the authority to arrest certain ministers and there kingpin? if not this drive is going to be another waste of public funds & resources.

    Put the king pin of drugs, the so called "doctor" in the slam and the problem will be solved instantly.

    It is simple. Just reward anyone who give information leading to arrest of ANY SELLER. I strongly believe that this scheme suits Sri Lanka and the DRUG problem will be over within a year.

    Some politicians in govt party and their henchmen may be in trouble. But my bet is you `ll be in trouble
