Sinhala colonists attempt to rob Tamil cattle herders in border village of Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 04 April 2018, 18:26 GMT]
Unknown intruders who spoke in Sinhala escaped after a Tamil farmer shouted for help after seeing the gang attempting to steal their cattle at the pastureland of Mayilaththa-madu, a border village situated in Ko'ra'laip-pattu South (Kiraan) division of Batticaloa district. The incident took place Saturday night when the farmers were at sleep in their huts.

The intruding gang had managed to bind one of the Tamil farmers sealing the mouth of the victim with a plaster tape.

The robbers, who spoke in Sinhala, ran away as those sleeping in the neighbouring hut rushed to the site after hearing the shouting.

The gang had probably come to rob their goats, the farmers said adding that their cell phones were missing.

A similar incident was reported in August 2017 when the intruders managed to steal two goats.

There are increasing reports of Sinhala colonists harassing Tamil cattle herders in the area.
