‘Yukthiya’ Operation: Police utilise special sticker to enhance vehicle inspection efficiency
January 07, Colombo (LNW): Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in charge of Traffic Indika Hapugoda elaborated on the objectives of the ‘Yukthiya’ (Justice) operation, a special traffic initiative undertaken by the Sri Lanka police.
Deputy Inspector General Hapugoda clarified that the primary focus of vehicle checks within this operation is to curb narcotics smuggling, particularly beyond the boundaries of Colombo.
The initiative aims to prevent the illicit transportation of drugs from Colombo to other areas and to apprehend any wanted suspects attempting to flee from Colombo.
To facilitate efficient enforcement, DIG Hapugoda outlined a distinctive feature of the operation. Police officers will utilise a special sticker, affixed to the left side of the windscreen of checked vehicles.
This measure ensures that vehicles which have undergone inspection are easily identifiable at subsequent checkpoints, streamlining the overall monitoring process, he emphasised.
The ‘Yukthiya’ operation reflects a strategic effort by the Police to enhance traffic management, combat narcotics-related activities, and apprehend individuals with legal implications attempting to evade authorities by traversing from Colombo to other regions.
