Sinhala villagers assault Indian nationals in Hatton

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 August 2011, 16:33 GMT]
Two Indian nationals working as an Engineer and Consultant in an Indian funded hospital project in Hatton were assaulted by Sinhala villagers at Ambagamuwa in Ginigathena in the Central Province on Wednesday 7.00 pm. The attack took place when the driver of the car they were travelling, a Muslim, went away to a nearby tea kiosk to break fast. Both injured persons were admitted to Glegan Base hospital in Dickoya. The excuse for the attack is said to be that the villagers suspected the victims as ‘grease devils’. But it was revealed in a number of instances in recent days that Sri Lanka’s military and intelligence personnel were involved in the ‘grease devil’ attacks that target Tamils and Muslims in the island.

The Glengan Base hospital where the Indian nationals are working is currently being expanded with an Indian Government donation of 90 million Indian rupees.
