(Lanka-e-News - 02.Sep.2017, 8.00PM) While minister of law and order in charge of the police Sagala Ratnayake is singing ‘baila’ using only his mouth organ , and vainly boasting that the country must be rescued from becoming a heroin hub and illicit drug headquarter , an officer of the very police narcotics bureau which exists to eradicate the drug scourge was caught red handed by the Narcotics bureau officers itself when he was having a ‘beach party’ for sale of large quantities of drugs.
The incident occurred at ‘The beach Boutique’ hotel ,Uswetakaiyawa , on 26th (Saturday) of August. Based on a tip off received by DIG Sanjeewa Medawatte of the Narcotics Bureau that a beach party is on where all the drugs available in Sri Lanka including cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy , Hashish , pill, ice are being sold , the DIG had dispatched a team of officers to the venue to conduct a raid led by an SI. No sooner the narcotics team laid siege to the venue of the party , who emerged first was the organizer of the party. The narcotics team could not believe their eyes ,for the organizer of the party was none other than notorious SI Mahinda who is an officer of the Narcotics bureau itself!
Mahinda seeing the narcotics team and the chief of the team (who is an SI junior to Mahinda ) that raided, addressing the junior SI said most unconcernedly ‘ shic, yakko , all of you spoilt the game. I could have sold about 500 more tickets.’
In fact ,SI Mahinda at the time the beach party was being organized that day , had left narcotics bureau citing the excuse he has an important task to attend .
The team that went from Colombo had returned and informed Sanjeewa Medawatte in writing . Believe it or not , though this shocking incident happened on 26 th August , until the time of publishing this article (September 1 st ) night no action has been taken.
It is well to recall Lanka e news earlier on , as always, reporting fearlessly , frankly and forthrightly revealed that SI Mahinda was apprehended when buying a weapon from a drug dealer , and that crime was suppressed by Kamal Silva , Director of Narcotics bureau at that time ,and torture prone violent IGP Poojitha. Lanka e news also reported that when Kamal Silva was Director of Narcotics , he opened a four storied hotel , and it was this same notorious SI Mahinda who was put in charge to look after it.
This hotel is situated in close proximity to ‘The beach boutique’ hotel where the beach party was held .
Similarly , prior to that , Jayawardena of the Narcotics bureau was apprehended when selling a part of the quantity of heroin supposedly seized by him to drug dealers . It was the same narcotics director who intervened to save that culprit too . Lanka e news exposed this crime also at that time.
It is an incontrovertible fact therefore the police force is being disgraced on an unprecedented scale by an eccentric, violent and torture prone IGP who is facing charges under the ‘torture convention’ and the penal code. Besides he is being permitted to retain and pamper his corrupt and venal henchmen in the Narcotics bureau to the detriment of the entire country .
In these dire circumstances if the minister in charge is ignoring this deadly and portentous scenario while also without any sense of shame doing lip service only- simply saying , SL is fast becoming a headquarter for drug trafficking and it should be rescued , after allowing the drug menace to reach such alarming proportions under his own police force , it should be first examined whether his mouth or some other orifice down below is making those utterances.
Sagala the minister of law and order ( disorder) will be well advised if he would honorably hand over the portfolio to somebody else instead of trying to put in order what he knows very well he cannot. Otherwise , he would have to face the same dismal fate Wijedasa Rajapakse faced – kicked out.

Its high time this rascal resigns from his post because he is also a stooge o MR . The country is in total disorder and Sagala is responsible for all the chaos in the police department. Its a total shame on UNP that every minister appointed is total misfit or working for the JO.
