He says that that will be done irrespective of the fact that politicians are having links with the underworld.
Madduma Bandara was giving a televised interview yesterday (12).
However, ‘Lankadeepa’ reports that a politician is intimidating the police to release one of the two underworld figures arrested at Midigama in Weligama on the previous day.
The duo are said to be behind several murders and extortions in the western province.
The man whom the politician wants released is an IRC known as Chinthaka Malli and Harak Kata.
He was taken along with a hand grenade and heroin.
The two are being interrogated at the police headquarters.
