Mar 10, Colombo: Civilians, religious leaders, police and security services in Sri Lanka's North have joined hands to strengthen the civil security system in the area.

The move to join forces was initiated at a meeting presided by Senior Deputy Inspector General of Police for the North, Pujith Jayasundera at the Illankai Venthan Auditorium in Jaffna last week, a media report from Jaffna said.

Several issues that were hindering the freedom in the Jaffna area had been discussed at the meeting, according to reports.

Leaders of the civil society had informed the police of the illegal activities, such as prostitution, drug peddling and the sale of illicit liquor taking place in the area.

A new movement for law and order in Jaffna had meanwhile raided several unauthorized lodges and nabbed a number of women who were engaged in prostitution.
