Traders staged a hartal in Vavuniya this morning against the alleged inaction of the police to conduct an inquiry into the abduction and later release of a businessman in the area for a Rs.600,000 ransom.

The Vavuniya traders closed shop during the hartal demanding the police to probe the abduction and arrest those responsible.

    I think Gayan has a point. But whats the point if the Govt. officials and the police are behaving like the LTTE.
    Where is the freedom from the LTTE if there is no difference?

    These things may happened continuesly if we fail to devolve the
    Political Power for them.
    Other thing is all authoritiesshould act very wisely.

    thamilppodiyan Tuesday, 27 July 2010 11:51 AM

    thamilppodiyan Tuesday, 27 July 2010 11:50 AM

    They are carrying out orders rom so many Masters . . .

    Anura Tuesday, 27 July 2010 11:07 AM

    INACTION MEANS POLICE SUPPORT WAS IN ACTION IN ABDUCTION!

    James bond Tuesday, 27 July 2010 09:28 AM

    does it make any difference for the harassed or the abducted ones?

    RIYADH Tuesday, 27 July 2010 05:36 AM

    AJ - COLOMBO Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:37 AM

    Will IGP be in a position to say that his juniors are clean?

    Arshad Tuesday, 27 July 2010 08:03 AM

    Actions has to be taken to stop these abduction which could damage the image of this country.

    Wasantha Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:42 AM

    If police did not show any interest to execute the duty, that means this was commited by a powerful element , who has the government backing. Do not forget that even though some former terrorists acted like reformists, still we cannot trust them 100%.

    kesavan Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:12 AM

    Gayan....can you please educate yourself...this the problem with 99% sinhalese. Vavuniya town upto omanthai never has been under LTTE control. it was always under GOSL. You guys should be ashamed. We just live in a small country but dont even know or didn't even bother to know the truth.

    Farook Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:03 AM

    So who suffered from the hartal? Think. If hartals can correct the police, we would have the best police in the world.

    Faqi Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:03 AM

    It's time law & order is established in the North & East. Its incumbent on the Police to win the hearts and minds of the people in these areas and bring normalcy as soon as possible.

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:00 AM

    If any Hartal was held, it should be against the LTTE as they were the rulers of Vavuniya those days. Then why do you say that they were stopped by the government bodies.. ?

    Ram Tuesday, 27 July 2010 06:28 AM

    Even during the LTTE period several times Hartal were held. But unfortunately didn't come to light since forces, police and the govt. supportive elements have threatened and stopped it halfway since all of them had share

    B.B. Marasingha Tuesday, 27 July 2010 06:19 AM

    Humanitarian Operation II

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 27 July 2010 06:14 AM

    Wonder how if it was during LTTE period..It is good that these people are enjoying more freedom than the black past.. at least they can stage a Hartal now.

    kesavan Tuesday, 27 July 2010 06:09 AM

    How can they expect justice from police, while the Government elements itself doing these kind of things in Tamil areas.

    D Tuesday, 27 July 2010 06:02 AM

    i think the Sri Lanka Police has to be the most hated ever. :I

    ajith Tuesday, 27 July 2010 05:52 AM
