Rajapaksa's UPFA-men destroy Hindu temple in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 September 2012, 17:50 GMT]
Abiraami Amman Koayil in Meankaamam village, situated in Moothoor DS division of Trincomalee district, was destroyed on Wednesday. Residents in the area told TamilNet that a gang led by former Provincial Minister of Agriculture and Inland Fisheries T. Navaratnarajah, who is contesting the forthcoming election to the Eastern Provincial Council on the ticket of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa's ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA), was behind the destruction.

Villagers who rushed to the temple on receipt of information recovered an Identity Card of a Sri Lankan Police officer and a cell phone at the site.

However, the police officer has ‘explained’ that his IC and cell phone had been snatched by a youth.

But the police officer has not made any complaint to the police in connection to the alleged loss of his identity card, legal sources said.

The villagers say that Sinhala police personnel were also involved in the destruction of the temple.
