Mannar villagers angered by rape want Police out

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 October 2003, 12:46 GMT]
Villagers of Uyilankulam, east of Mannar, angered by the rape of a retarded woman living with her parents on Saturday night demanded that Sri Lankan Police posts in the area should be removed forthwith. The 32-year-old woman was admitted to the Anuradhapura Hospital on Sunday after she was allegedly raped brutally by two Policemen who had come to buy cigarettes at her father's shop.

Residents of Uyilankulam who met Mr. Selvam Adaikalanathan who visited the parents of the woman on Tuesday urged him to take immediate action to have the Police posts removed from the area.

Meanwhile, Mannar court sources told TamilNet that the Police are yet to file the first information report (B Report) on the rape.

Villagers alleged that two Policemen who had passed by the womanís home to drink toddy at a nearby tavern had observed she was alone and had brutally raped her.
