SL Police extorts money from Kaaththaankudi Muslim traders

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 06 November 2019, 19:45 GMT]
Sinhala police officers posing as Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) investigators from a special unit in Colombo engage in widespread extortion of money from the Muslim business owners in Kaaththaan-kudi. The extortion has increased in recent days, and the business owners are reluctant to lodge complaints at the police station in Kaaththaan-kudi even though Tamil-speaking Muslim police officers are manning the station.

Two SL policemen have recently instructed the shop owner of Baby Birds in Kaaththaankudi to come to a specific coastal locality and registered the details of the owner.

The so-called TID and CID investigators ask the business owners to come to different locations if they want to get protected from being charged on alleged links with the extremist National Thowheed Jamath (NTJ).

The Federation of Kathankudy Mosques and Muslim Institutions has urged the people not to succumb to the intimidations aimed at extortion of money.

The SL Police has not taken action against the complaints filed by the Muslim residents who have reported the theft of jewellery during the cordon and search operations carried out by the SL military aftermath the Easter Attacks in Kaaththaankudi, journalists in Kaaththaan-kudi said.
