Fifteen arrested over curfew violations on Thursday

Fifteen individuals were arrested for violating restrictions in the isolated areas last Thursday, Police Media Spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana said. They were arrested from Modara following drone footage obtained that evening, he added.

On Thursday, Police launched a special operation with the assistance of the Air Force to monitor public movements in areas under isolation using drone cameras following information received that certain groups have violated restrictions and were not adhering to the directives in certain isolated areas.

Special security teams were deployed to arrest individuals as soon as the drone footage was received.

This surveillance operation will be carried out until isolation is lifted and stern action will be taken against those violating restrictions in isolated areas, the DIG added.
