Crime wave shifts from Gota to Ranil
Priyantha Jayakodi, a former Senior Superintendent of Police, has revealed to the media that 239 murders have been committed in the first 148 days of this year (2023), becoming a severe crime wave.
The former Senior Superintendent of Police also revealed that the number of murders which was 273 in 2019 has increased to 533 by 2022. Most of these homicides were shootings, and 67% of them were found to have been committed in the Western and Southern provinces. 67 organized crime gangs have been identified, of which 47 are active in the Western Province. It was pointed out here that the implementation of the Police Intelligence network to prevent these crimes is very weak.
Since Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s rule, the police in Sri Lanka has been completely run by politicians, the country’s law and order has broken down, and the society has become a victim of this crime wave as it was broken even more seriously during Ranil Wickramasinghe’s rule.
