Street Dwellers Rounded Up And Sent To Rehab In Hambantota

Following an increasing number of beggar murders the police have begun rounding them up and sending them to Hambantota for rehabilitation. Police Spokesman SP Prashanth Jayakody said that the institution in the Ruhunu, Ridiyagama was an established one and that a number of beggars were being sent there for rehabilitation. He said that the rehabilitation of the beggars was an initiative of the Social Services Department who would have seen it fit to offer the homeless men and women shelter and safety, especially in light of the recent killings.
