SLA soldiers guard police stations in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 August 2005, 13:07 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army has decided to provide security to all police stations in the Jaffna district with immediate effect. Twenty soldiers are deployed in the premises of each police station. The Police has suspended traffic duty in major towns in the Jaffna district and also stopped investigating complaints in regard to minor offences, police sources in Jaffna said.

A special team of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Sri Lanka Police, which arrived in Jaffna following the killing of Mr. Charles Wijewardene, Senior Superintendent of Police, is currently conducting inquiries. Members of the CID team are reported to be staying in Kankesanthurai and Chunnakam Police stations, sources said.

As a part of the investigation, the Police recently arrested a LTTE cadre and are also searching for other suspects in connection with the killing. In this background army has started guarding police stations, sources said.
