Jan 26, Colombo: A rights movement in Sri Lanka has accused the police of failing to take any action against a police officer who had assaulted the convener of the movement.

The Movement for Equal Rights (MER) has stated that its convener had been assaulted by an inspector attached to the Jaffna Police when he had gone to lodge a complaint against an attack on members of the MER during a visit to Jaffna.

The MER has noted that Convener Ravindra Mudalige had written to Inspector General of Police (IGP) N.K. Ilangakoon about the incident and has called for action against the police inspector.

However, the MER has stated that neither the IGP nor the Police Department have taken any action regarding the matter or acknowledged Mudalige's letter.
