Police along with the Police Special Task force launched a search operation inside the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and around the banks of Ma Oya, located closer to the orphanage.

The search operation was initiated following the discovery of Hakkapatas from the banks of Ma Oya yesterday.

Police stated that the Hakkapatas were found concealed in a tree closer to the location where the elephants are taken for bathing.

Police suspect that the hakkapatas were hidden in a tree with the motive of harming an elephant as the elephants generally consume parts of trees while they are being taken to Ma Oya for bathing.

Meanwhile, subject minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera stated that police surveillance will be provided to the area throughout the entire day.

He further stated that measures will also be taken to fix a CCTV camera system as well.
