84 underworld gangs operate in Sri Lanka, says police

@ DM / 16Jan2006

Over twenty four underworld gangsters have been killed last year in clashes with the police. IGP Chandra Fernando said 18 underworld members had been killed in confrontations amongst them. Most of these confrontations have taken place between gangs involved in drugs.

Mr. Fernando explained that 77 hard-core underworld members have been arrested and remanded.

According to the data gathered by the police head office, there are 84 underworld gangs functioning in Sri Lanka, out of which 54 are from Colombo and the suburbs. There are also separate Muslim and Tamil underworld gangs functioning in Kotahena, Maligawatte and Mutwal areas, police said.

There is also an underworld gang led by a woman in Maligawatte. There are 10 women involved in this gang, according to police. Special police teams have been deployed island-wide to arrest the remaining gangsters.
