United National Party (UNP) Jaffna district parliamentarian Ms. Vijyakala Maheswaran Monday requested Sri Lanka government to launch an inquiry into the attack on Tamil prisoners in Colombo remand prison on Saturday. The Tamil prisoners were attacked when they complained to the prison authorities that they were being detained in overcrowded cells in the prison, sources in Colombo said.

She appealed to Sri Lanka government to take immediate measures to ensure the safety of Tamil prisoners now being detained in Colombo prisons.

Ms. Vijyakala Maheswaran is the wife of the slain UNP Jaffna district parliamentarian T. Maheswaran.

She successfully contested Jaffna district as a UNP candidate in the last general election.
