Policemen in plain clothes in NWP

About 375 police officers in plain clothes have been deployed in towns of Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts of the North Western Province (NWP) to arrest those who are without facemasks and those who do not follow health guidelines that have been put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

About 413 such health rules violators were arrested during past six days in Kurunegala. Of them, 154 were sued, a senior official attached to the Kurunegala DIG’s office told the media yesterday (12).
