The police have arrested 15 people in connection with the Nawalapitiya election incidents IGP Mahinda Balasuriya said a short while ago adding that impartial investigations would be carried out on the suspects.

The police have so far received 11 complaints of election related violence.  

 The IGP added that current checkpoints are to remain in tact and the three armed forces have been deployed to provide security to the counting stations and that political rallies will not be authorized for one week after the elections.

    Give them some 'biriyani' and release them in the morning.

    What a joke? Never seen a result come out of an 'impartial' investigation or any 'impartial' action from the police, especially under the present so-called 'democratic' regime.

    Sri Lanka is doing all nonsense, in the name of a 'democratic' country.

    I bet those who were arrested are supporters of the opposition.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 06:18 PM

    Yes, arrested, but they will be released tommorrow morning, without any charges! This is the real 'law & order' of Sri Lanka. Oh, what a shame! Oh, what a lawless country in the world.

    This was not unexpected. However, we as civil society will be surprised if action IS taken, without prejudice. I hope a fresh poll will ordered in the affected areas.
