The Special Task Force (STF) will, on a directive issued by President Maithripala Sirisena, provide security to Jaffna High Court Judge M. Ilancheliyan, informed sources said.

An eight-member STF team, led by a Sub Inspector, will provide security to Judge Ilancheliyan’s residence and his convoy.

On the directions of President Maithripala Sirisena, Inspector General of Police Pujith Jayasundara, in coordination with STF Commandant and the Deputy Inspector General of Police for Jaffna, had worked out the security plan for the High Court Judge, informed sources said.

Judge Ilancheliyan even stressed on the need to strengthen his security soon after his bodyguard, Sub Inspector Sarath Premachandra was gunned down, by a man who was believed to be under the influence of alcohol, on the Southern street of historic Nallur Kanthaswamy temple in Jaffna, last Saturday(22).

Lawyers, from all five districts in the Northern Province, along with several civil society organizations have been staging demonstrations in the North to condemn the attack carried out on the High Court Judge’s convoy while expressing their condolences on the death of Sub Inspector Sarath Premachandra.

Meanwhile, Sarath Premachandra’s funeral in his home town Chilaw was held with full Police honours yesterday. The dead Sergeant was posthumously elevated to the rank of Sub Inspector. (PA)

    What a great gesture by this Tamil judge.

    What a stupid move by the President. when the police officers were there they became lackadaisical and tried to play with the one who is taking the gun forcibly. There was no alert – police officer nearby who could shoot the drunkard point blank on the head. Who was scared to the wrong public opinion.
