Bed sheets were set on fire by several inmates of the Trincomalee prison today morning after two phones and money were confiscated by prison officials in a sudden raid. The smoke emitting from the fire had caused breathing difficulties for several inmates. The Navy Fire Brigade had to be called in to bring the fire and smoke under control, prison officials told Daily Mirror
wonder from where the smoke is comming... prisoners puffing too much of 'stuff' which is quite freely available in prison they say...

Due to the on going operation against the underworld, most of the underworld gang leaders have selected either the prison or leave out of Country for their survival. However, if decided to go abroad it would be difficult to continue the illegal activities which generate millions of rupees for them daily. Therefore to prevent such the acts masterminds whilst being in the prison, the Prison officers have a vital role to play. They should act with more responsible manner, whilst maintaining high level of honesty & integrity. As long as they remain in the underworld payroll, half of the crimes happening every day ( including the unreported ransom cases of larger scale) cannot be eradicated. Also such a corrupted set of officers, who have become under obligation to the criminals, undermines the excellent job being carried out by the STF to achieve a Country, Free of Organized Crimes.

Let them now sleep on cement floors. Just like what "Katussa" said, the jailors should deny them even things like lighters, pillows etc. These are not ordinary prinsoners: they are underworld Kings.

Just because dogs bite - do you bite the dogs????? Authorities should take right step in order to deal & avoid with such issues.

They are still living beings. Don't take away their pillows and books, etc. But do take away lighters. They don't have a right to lighters.
