Addressing a function in Polonnaruwa, President Sirisena said he had started “polishing” the Police service, and went on to question what the ministers in charge of the Police service did over the last 25-30 years.
“Three months after I took over the Department of Police, there is an all-out war against drugs and the underworld. None of the other ministers who overlooked the Police service before, allowed it to function as an effective law enforcement unit,” Sirisena said.
The Dubai Police yesterday had arrested drug smuggler Angoda Lokka, an associate of Makandure Madush who fled the scene when Dubai Police arrested Madush and another 16 suspects last Tuesday.
He has been arrested by the police when he was hiding at another hotel in Dubai, Police Special Task Force (STF) said. The blood samples had revealed Angoda Lokka was under the influence of Hashish.
Meanwhile, Makandure Madush and other suspects who were arrested earlier were produced before the Dubai Courts yesterday morning.

Notorious criminal and Sri Lanka’s most wanted drug kingpin Samarasinghe Arachchilage Madush Lakshitha infamously known as Makandure Madush, was arrested by Dubai law enforcement officials in an extraordinary raid this week.
At the time of his arrest, Madush had been on the run for over two years, evading the Sri Lankan Police successfully while living a comfortable life in Dubai and carrying out his criminal activities from the Middle Eastern country.
However, now his crime spree appears to have been ended by friends turned foes who tipped off the Dubai Police, leading to his unexpected arrest.
In a remarkable turn of events, the Dubai Police not only arrested Madush but also a host of other suspects now identified as prominent members of the Sri Lankan underworld.
While Dubai Police have commenced investigations into the group and their activities, according to informed sources it was a devious plan hatched by yet another group of underworld figures that led to Madush and his gang’s eventual arrests.
