The two Police officers who were on guard duty at the Gampaha residence of a ruling party WPC member had been transferred to the Hanwella and the Gampaha Police stations, sources said.

The transfers were effected on the instructions of IGP N.W. Illangakoon.

The officers had complained that they were compelled to attend to the house-hold chores of the Councillor and even to look after cattle.

Meanwhile, the Provincial Councillor had been informed to request security from the military.

The Police Spokesman said last morning that formal investigations were underway.

The two constables deployed to provide security for the UPFA female member of the WPC wrote in their complaint that they were asked to do gardening, work in farms and paddy fields belonging to the politician and numerous other domestic chores including cooking and washing utensils.

They have said that they were frustrated and embarrassed as they were compelled to attend to such work instead of performing their official duty of providing security.

In addition they complained that they were even asked to work while off-duty and the politician did not avail their services when she was travelling on official purposes.

They were instead left behind at her home to attend to household work.

She had also threatened to complain to the IGP against the PCs if they refused to carry out her orders.(Siri Mahabellana)

    Name and shame these kind of people.
    Police also have no choice as they often do things to get politician's attention.
    Also police should respect the law and treat the the common man with dignity.

    First of all do they need police protection ?

    Waco Monday, 12 May 2014 07:35 AM

    These two constables should be terminated for not reporting the matter earlier.
    And also silting the dart net of Police by dong those services.
    The salaries paid to these constables during this period should be recovered from the councillor.
    I am at a loss to understand why this councillor is not terminated for mis-using taxpayers money.

    What is the punishment given to MP for misusing, insulting police service. Was it a punishment transfer. Probably she gets two substitutes.

    Assuming 24 hours security and a salary of 25,000 per constable per month, the cost born by the public for a 4 year term of this WPC Member the "B"

    2x3 X25,000x12x4 = Rs. 7,200,000

    Ammatta hudu!!!!

    This happened in the house of the UNP Mr Madduma Bandara in 2006 in Monaragala. This useless MP who is giving endless trouble to UNP. got the PC to concrete his house and do other mason work. When he refused at a certain stage, he took the T/56 weapon issued to this PC and chased him out of the house and PC was not paid his salary as he reported that the PC had abandoned his place of duty. This kind of politicians should be shot by the PC.

    Neil Wijeratne Monday, 12 May 2014 02:00 PM

    Why do you put these police officers to look after these cows?

    winson Monday, 12 May 2014 05:45 AM

    I think this person isn't a WPC member..she is a National List MP..

    DHA Monday, 12 May 2014 06:01 AM

    This is a direct result of stupid people entering parliament she doesn't know the value and the sacrifice rendered by our forces little the stupid women knows the fact they are risking their lives to keep her and her family safe.....dum donkey......

    mollamaari Monday, 12 May 2014 06:06 AM

    Was this B....'s father shot dead like a dog on the street?? All this time, you both did not have backbone to refuse the tasks which she asked to do?

    hb Monday, 12 May 2014 06:15 AM

    These two policemen had a backbone to compliant. I'm sure there are many others who are still continuing to look after cattle and pick coconuts.

    dinesh Monday, 12 May 2014 06:19 AM

    After giving deep thought in to what happened to UNP MP's at Hambanthota in front of Police guards, this MP has done the right thing by assigning maid work.
