Seventeen police officers including the acting OIC attached to the Dickwella Police Station have been transferred to the Matara Police station with immediate effect in connection with allegedly assaulting a group of villagers, who were preparing for a Poson Perahera in Kemagoda, Dickwella on Saturday night, police said.

“As we launched a special police investigation into the incident under the supervision of a Superintendent of Police, steps have been taken to the transfer them from the Dickwella police,” Police Spokesman SP Buddhika Siriwardane told Daily Mirror online.
