SL Police, Forest Department connive against Tamil dairy farmers in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 31 January 2018, 15:01 GMT]
Eight Tamil dairy farmers were ‘arrested’ on Tuesday by the guards of SL Forest Department alleging the former of being in possession of animal traps. The arrest came in the evening just a few hours after the farmers lodged a complaint with the SL Police in Karadiyanaa’ru against animal traps being laid against their cattle in Mayilaththa-madu pasture land area. The SL police told the farmers to remove the traps from the pasture land promising action against those laying the traps, the farmers said after getting released from the SL forest guards.

Seven cattle herders were released at the locality. But, one was taken to the Forest Department office in Araganwila and released on bail.

Aralaganwila is a Sinhalese village on the Polanaruwa district's border with that of the Batticaloa district.

The dairy farmers alleged that the Sinhala police and forest guards of the SL Forest Department run by the occupying unitary State of genocidal Sri Lanka are working to chase the Tamil farmers away from the area with the motive of seizing the region for Sinhalicisation in the future.

Tamil dairy farmers have been fighting against Sinhala occupation in the past and succeed to certain extent in containing the colonisers.

But, the ministry of so-called Mahaweli development, which comes under SL President Maithiripala Sirisena, who hails from Polonnaruwa district, is scheming colonisation of Tamil areas in the western hinterland of Batticaloa, which is known as Paduvaan-karai.
