Government of India is to spend nearly US$450,000 in training up to 400 Sri Lanka police officers in the areas of crime investigation including cyber crimes and bank frauds, a press release issued by the Sri Lanka Information department Tuesday said.

Full text of the press release follows:

As part of ongoing cooperation between India and Sri Lanka in the area of law enforcement, nearly 400 Sri Lankan police officers would shortly begin training at institutions in India.

385 officers of the rank of Inspectors and Sub-Inspectors would be trained in suitable batches in advanced techniques of crime investigation and scientific aids to investigation including of cyber crimes, bank frauds, etc.

One of the training courses is for police dog handlers.

The courses would translate into reality a commitment made by India at the meeting in Colombo in June 2005 of the bilateral Joint Commission headed by the External Affairs Minister of India, Mr. K.
