Unarmed police fight against underworld’s Uzi guns Featured

An unarmed police have to fight against the Uzi guns of the underworld, says executive director of the Centre for Human Rights, Sri Lanka Keerthi Tennakoon.

Speaking to the media in Rajagiriya yesterday (25), he was referring to the recent incident in Matara.

A policeman had to die as the police, despite knowing the strength of the underworld, had no weapons to counter the Uzi gun-wielding gangsters, he said.

It is anti-democratic and an insult to the deceased policeman to shoot a handcuffed suspect on the pretext of finding hidden weapons, said Tennakoon.
