The slight increase in violence in the North will be addressed:Nalin Bandara


Law and Order Deputy Minister Nalin Bandara has stated that the slight increase in violence in the north is a matter of concern and it will be addressed by law enforcement authorities in the coming week.

 Law and Order Deputy Minister Nalin Bandara said"The situation in the North is that there is a slight increase in armed gangs in Jaffna. The Counter Terrorism Unit is also on high alert as a result of these developments during the past few months. We also cancelled the holidays of most police officers in Jaffna and surrounding areas because we carried out raids on armed groups in the past month. This helped us to reduce the threat for the medium term.

In the coming days, Law and Order Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara, IGP Pujith Jayasundara and myself will be going to Jaffna. We expect to visit all police stations and other related organisations to hold discussions regarding the issue of increasing violence. We also hope to express views on what needs to be done, the resources they need to carry out operations and the support needed to carry them out."
