Chavakachcheri forms resident's night patrol citing police failure to tackle crime

With Sri Lankan police failing to tackle an increase in crimes in some parts of the North, a town in Jaffna has decided to take the matter in to its own hands by forming a resident’s night patrol.

Chavakachcheri Urban Council decided unanimously to form the patrol, stating that relying on the police to handle the situation was useless.

The patrols will be made up of council members and local youths.
