With an aim to boost ongoing action against the drug traffickers and other organised criminals exploiting the narrow sea route between India and Sri Lanka, both nations agreed to work jointly against the terrorist entities including the Global Terrorist Groups and fugitives.

In a first delegation-level virtual Police Chiefs’ Dialogue between the both countries, the need for sharing of real time intelligence and feedback was emphasised and it was also decided to strengthen the existing cooperation mechanisms, and also designate ‘nodal points’ for timely and effective handling of existing as well as emerging security challenges.

While Indian delegation was led by the Intelligence Bureau Director Arvind Kumar, Inspector General of Police CD Wickramaratne headed the Sri Lankan side.

The institution of Police Chiefs’ Dialogue, assisted by the members of other security agencies on both the sides, will further enhance the existing cooperation between the police forces of both the countries, a statement by the Union Home Ministry said after the virtual meet.
