Newly appointed Deraniyagala OIC transferred

1 August 2013 11:34 pm - 22     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prabath Deshabandu, the newly appointed OIC of Deraniyagala has received sudden transfer orders instructing him to vacate his post with immediate effect. Accordingly he has been transferred to the Padiyathalawa Police Station in the Ampara district

The former STF officer assumed duties nineteen days ago. He had conducted raids against the alleged criminals during this period and attempted to bring the perpetrators to the book, villagers said.

Yesterday he arrested the sister of the former Deraniyagala Pradeshiya Sabha chairman Anil Champika (alias Atha Kota) for allegedly looting the Noori Estate -- after which she had been remanded.

Deshabandu is also reported to have ordered the current Pradeshiya Sabha chairman Anura Wijesuriya to close an illegal wine store allegedly operated by him. (Susitha R. Fernando and Hafeel Farisz)

    the recent incidents make us to ask the question why he is transferred ? is that the police officer doing the job correctly or not doing his job correctly ? I think this is a coup by the mentally il powerholders to week the police and legal system and take the country to a uncivilised military jungle state to protect only their own interests.

    Perhaps they wanted another Ath Kota to terrorise the area.

    The honest Police Officer must keep there. DO NOT ALLOW TO INTERFERE POLICE DUTIES.

    How many times have we heard recently of similar stories of police corruption and thugs running the show? What skeletons do our leaders have in their closets? Are they being blackmailed by thugs who are also politicians now? If that is the case, it may be time to clean up the pig sty.
