[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 May 2008, 17:40 GMT]
Tamil traders in Piliyandala are living in constant fear as Sinhala goons daily threaten them and rob their stocks of goods from their establishments. This has been going on since the Piliyandala bus bomb blast, media sources said.

Sinhala goons Monday robbed goods displayed by Tamil traders on pavements in Piliyandala. In another incident a group of Sinhalese came in a tractor Tuesday morning forcibly removed goods from shop belongs to a Tamil trader in Piliyandala town. The particular trader immediately brought this incident to Mano Ganeshan, leader of the Western Peoples Front who in turn reported the matter to the Officer in Charge of the Piliyandala police. A police party immediately rushed to the site and arrested two persons and seized the goods taken in the tractor, media sources said.

The security in areas where shops of Tamils are located is tightened.
