Sri Lanka today dismissed a US report that questioned the human rights record of its police and security forces, saying that the situation in the country is “better than most of the countries with five star democracies”.

Colombo’s reaction came after the State Department report alleged that “a number of suspects detained by police or other security forces died under questionable circumstances”.

The report also cited that the Asian Human Rights Council had compiled 1500 cases of police torture between 1998 and 2001.

Responding to the accusations, police media spokesperson, Ajith Rohana stated that the police categorically reject all charges.
