Probe into persons using social media to create disharmony Featured

Police are to put in place a special effort to investigate persons who create communal and religious disharmony through social media.

According to police media spokesman DIG Priyantha Jayakody, the law will be enforced against such persons irrespective of their positions.

He also said at a media briefing yesterday that (18) investigations were underway to arrest Bodu Bala Sena general secretary Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera.

If someone intentionally tries to protect a person against whom a court has issued an arrest warrant, that person too will be dealt with legally, said the police spokesman.
