Rehabilitation and Prison Reconstruction Ministry approval has been given to change the Sinhala version of hangman ‘Alugosuva’ or ‘Vadakaya’ into ‘Post of Jeeva Harana’.

Prison Commissioner General Chandrarathna Pallegama stated that the public were invited earlier to submit alternative names to be replaced with the hangman’s Sinhala version “Alugosuva’.

He said the name “Jeva Harana” was selected later among 200 names proposed by the public.

Several persons were recruited to the hangman position in the recent past but all of them vacated the post a little later.

Prison Commissioner General Chandrarathna Pallegama further explained about the new designation to be adopted instead of “Alugosuva”.
