    Has any reliable person from the present POLICE DEPARTMENT CAN MAKE AN URGENT Transfer to the complete section of the POLICE STATION HOMAGAMA as it has no guarantee of people and their lives. When call we call the emergency 119 they never sight the location and giving only excuses. There are robberies occurring and it is absurd visiting the area when things has happened. MOST RESPECTED ACTING IGP PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS ASAP.
