Occupying SL Army, Police jointly attack Tamil youth in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 February 2012, 18:40 GMT]
Sri Lanka's occupying Sinhala army and police brutally attacked a number of Tamil youth below the age of 25, who were passing by the road in Nedung-kea'ni in Mullaiththeevu district on Tuesday night. The unprovoked and random attack followed some complaints of Sinhala road workers from the South, news sources in Vanni told TamilNet. Sometimes back a similar attack took place in Vanni after a confrontation between some Sinhala visitors from the South and the local people. Such attacks by the colonial forces were to remind the Eezham Tamils in Vanni of their subjugated status, the sources further said.

The SLA soldiers stopped around 7 youths who were crossing the road. The youth were severely attacked, made naked and dumped into the nearby irrigation canal and were tortured inside the canal.

The loud wailings of the youth were heard for a long time while people confined themselves to their houses due to fear.

Finally, the SLA soldiers dragged some of the youth into the nearby scrub jungle, residents said.

The SLA and Police excused themselves to the public by saying that the youth had come to attack their camps.

Last December, a group of Sinhala men from South who came to a Tamil shop at Ira'naimadu junction in Kilinochchi, attacked the shop owner provoking the local people to retaliate.

Following the incident, the occupying military brutally attacked passing by people of the locality.
