(Lanka-e-News – 10.May.2017, 7.05PM) Two officers of the police team of the Anti Narcotics Bureau were injured and another was shot dead on Moratuwa road , Piliyandala on the 9 th night , based on reports .
Newmal Rangajeewa IP, a notorious officer of the Bureau and his assistant Chaminda who received gunshot injuries were admitted to hospital where they are being treated. Rangajeewa had sustained injuries on the forehead .
While the anti narcotics team was traveling in a jeep , a group that arrived on a motor bike had fired at them , and fled. The officer who drove the jeep died on the spot. An 8 years old girl and a 15 years old boy who were in a neighboring shop had also been caught in the gun fire , it is learnt.
It is a pity the police force under IGP Poojitha Jayasundara ( who is meditating instead of investigating), in relation to another shooting incident too had still not been able to arrest the murderers of Samayan who died when the prisoners were being transported in a bus . The killers in that incident fled after shooting at the bus.
How can the IGP discharge his duties duly or make arrests when he is wasting all his time only on self publicity gimmicks ,and on ensuring , his subordinates abide by the orders issued by him to meditate every morning to boost his image (which is by now well known as moth eaten ), while neglecting his own onerous official duties ?
Since Rangajeewa of the anti Narcotics Bureau is well known for his wheeler dealer activities in association with drug dealers , it is difficult to believe this shooting was done by the drug dealers based on informed sources within the police.
