More than 600 police officers including 110 police officers attached to the Valachchenai Police station were transferred with immediate effect, Police Spokesperson SP Prashantha Jayakody said.

“These men are being transferred back to their original police stations since the end of their operational duties in the North and East,” the police spokesperson said. He denied allegations that these transfers were politically motivated.

    With so many police officers, and so many army, navy personnel around, still there are abductions, murder, robbery going around the country!!! How all these unlawful acts are taking place with check points at every few yards?

    If they are transferred back to their original stations, then if the original stations were NOT short-manned up to now, these stations are going to be over-staffed from now on!

    Yes mate. Under or over-staffed, Whatever the outcome, you can whine.

    What are the reasons for the transfers - public should know as we are at the mercy of the police.
