Police arrested for negligence

[TamilNet, Saturday, 15 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
Four Policemen and a home guard were arrested today by the Sri Lankan authorities for negligence of duty at the Kelanitissa power plant today.

Investigations are said to be underway as to how the Liberation Tigers were able to infiltrate the sensitive interior of the high security area, plant explosives and then get away.

Policemen manning checkpoints at the nearby Kelaniya bridge have also been interrogated, said sources.

The government is concerned that despite the massive cordon and search operation in the city recently it has not been able to arrest any of the suspected Tiger commando units that it thinks are based in the city.
