President Mahinda Rajapaksa today instructed the Police Chief N.K Illangkoon to carry out an investigation into the sabotage of opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena’s public rally at Wanduramba in Galle this morning.


“Two special police teams and the Wanduramba Police are investigating the incident,” Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said.  


He said disciplinary action would be taken against the Wanduramba Police OIC for not having provided security to the location where the public rally was to be held.


SSP Rohana said security had been provided throughout the night and till six in the morning but the incident had occurred after the security had been removed and that the reason why the security had been removed was also being investigated.


Unidentified gangsters who had arrived in two Defender jeeps are reported to have sabotaged the stage and the decorations by setting them on fire. They had also damaged the vehicle and the public address system.


Mr. Sirisena was scheduled to address a rally in Wanduramba this evening.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    can he or is it only the election commissioner who can order

    If I were the police I would not do anything until i got the orders from president. Initiating a probe on government thugs without presidential orders is a sure way to go home. Police have kids and family too.

    nishendra Wednesday, 17 December 2014 04:52 PM

    No body should instruct to probe an inquiry.In a democratic country police should go there and do their duty

    Nodrog Wednesday, 17 December 2014 04:59 PM

    He wants to know so he can reward them.

    lionheart Wednesday, 17 December 2014 04:59 PM

    Sir, the police have given the final verdict as Maithripala supporters having burnt thier own stage due to a foreign conspiracy.

    Jay Wednesday, 17 December 2014 05:00 PM
