On 18.06.2012 a policeman called Sunil Jayaratna attached to Iginiyagala police was assaulted inhumanly by the OIC called Dias of the same police station. On the same day assaulted police officer admitted to Ampara District hospital. From there he was transferred to Colombo General Hospital and now he is being treated at Narahenpita police hospital. He is being in the hospital for more than 20 days. According to the penal code of Sri Lanka this was a serious injury because he is being refrained from any activity for more than 20 days. This is the reality of people friendly proud police of Sri Lanka. When an Officer In Charge of the police station treats a policeman under his authority like this manner it is not difficult to think how a police personnel treat to powerless and marginalized people in the country. So what we can say to the Rajapaksha regiment who made the police commission inactive and disappear the rule of law by introducing the 18th amendment to the constitution.
