Grease yakas, a fiction - SP

The grease yaka or the bhuthaya is a myth. The public should not be misled and terrified by rumours because certain persons and groups are trying to take political and other advantage from such fabricated stories, police spokesman SP Prishantha Jayakody said.

SP Jayakody said that some persons and groups try to cultivate a public opinion in the country stating that there is no law in this country and people do not have security.

“Certain media give publicity to some fabricated stories to make people scared. The stories started when seven women were killed at Kahawatta. But all suspects are now in custody. All grease devils and other suspects arrested from various parts of the country are in custody. No more grease yakas roam the country now. The grease devils appearing in various parts of the country are neighbours who have some sort of personal rift with certain persons or families. Therefore there is no need to fear about supernatural forces or grease devils,” he said.

“The public should be vigilant about such strange persons because they are from their own neighbourhood who have conflicts or rifts with their neighbours.

“Recently some women had caught some `super natural forces’ and grease devils and found that they were from their own neighbourhood. Some women admitted that the persons who attacked them were not grease yakas but their own husbands who were under the influence of liquor. They had lied to the police to prevent their husbands from getting arrested,” SP Jayakody said.
