The Defence Secretary has called upon the people not to be misled by false propaganda and to extend support to the Police at all times as the Police are able to maintain law and order.
The Defence Secretary said that due to false ideas about devils, a number of Police stations have been damaged by the people. They are violating law and order and innocent people have also been killed. He said that due to these actions Police have suffered much loss as new vehicles have also been destroyed while the public money is being wasted. The Police have to understand their responsibility while the people should place their confidence in the Police. The Defence Secretary expressed these views at a function to present certificates to the officers who followed a emergency medical technology course. The Police have been engaged in life saving since 1928. Governor of the Western province Alevi Maulana, Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal Roshan Gunatillake and IGP N. K. Illangakoon were amongst those who participated in the occasion.
