Sinhala gangs threaten Tamil traders in Kandy

[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 May 2009, 14:24 GMT]
Sinhala gangs in Kandy are continuing to threaten Tamil traders and extorting money from them, according to Mr.S.Rajaratnam, Member of the Central Provincial Council. Police were provided with telephone numbers and bank details of the heads of the gangs, but the law-enforcement has not taken any action on the criminals.

Rajaratnam, during the the monthly meeting of the Central Provincial Council held on Friday, alleged that the police had refused to reveal information about Sinhala gangs and also to take action against them.

The inaction of the law-enforcement officials have allowed the criminal gangs to continue to threaten the traders, Rajaratnam said.

The police had assaulted a Tamil trader when he went to the police station to make a complaint against a leading member of the Sinhala gang, Rajaratnam added.

He requested the Chief Minister to take prompt action in this regard and to ensure safety and security to the Tamil traders.
