A Man Is Being Tortured At Bandaragama Police Station Now – AHRC

The Asian Human Rights Commission has learned from the wife of D.A. Ruwan Kumara (27) that he has been taken into police custody by officers of the Bandaragama Police Station and is being tortured. The wife, Chinthini Nadeesa and Ruwan Kumara’s brother have visited him at the police station and have seen him being tortured by some police officers who are keeping him at a location behind the police station.

Inspector General of Police

Chinthini Nadeesa has made complaints through the telephone and facsimile to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka and the Inspector General of Police. However, this has not led to any relief and Ruwan Kumara continues to be tortured, according to her. She appeals to the public to help her get the police to stop torturing her husband.

Previously her husband made some complaints against some officers of the Bandaragama Police Station and she believes this is the reason he is being tortured.

The Asian Human Rights Commission appeals to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka and the Inspector General of Police to intervene immediately in order to save Ruwan Kumara from further torture. Also the AHRC demands an investigation into the matter and the suspension of the Officer-in-Charge of the police station and all others engaged in torturing Ruwan Kumara until further action is taken at the conclusion of the inquiry.

We also urge the public to directly call the police station and express their concern. The telephone number of the Bandaragama Police Station is 94 38 2290222.

      Jim,

      “Previously her husband made some complaints against some officers of the Bandaragama Police Station and she believes this is the reason he is being tortured.”
      This is the SOP, Standard Operating Procedure.

      Yes. He is lucky, he is still alive.

      Alternately, he he can get buddies to get some Tomahawks or drones, and treat the police at Bandaragama. This is the standard procedure with the Taliban.

      Torture by Police and Military is an institution in Sri Lanka. With long, proud traditions. It is ingrained in our culture. Sorry to say.

      Unfortunately, most people justify this animal like cruelty (no offence to animals), as long as they are not at the receiving end of torture. Applies to Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims.

      Internationals cannot solve this disgusting problem for us. We must do it ourselves. Just like we fight for our labour rights.

      Publishing the phone number of this criminal Police station at Bandaragama is one good idea. Please let the public know OIC’s name & cell phone number too.

      I for one would love to have an extremely polite conversation with that guy. Though he runs a criminal operation at Bandaragama in Police uniform.

      Cheers!

        AHRC should take immediate steps to arrest those who cause mental cruelty to persons who surfs this forum.

        The first arrest of such persons should start with K.A Sumanasekera.

    b) No crime investigations at all – it will be just like a RICE packet distribution ceremony held by BBS and SO CALLED powerful GOTA

    c) Killings and abductions will be daily routine

    Aimless Human Rights Organisation is known to defend “Cattle Thieves” as well.

    Could this be a false alarm??
