Jaffna Security Forces Commander (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe said that the Army and Police would take all possible measures to prevent unauthorized persons carrying weapons other than the Security Forces and the Police.
some people were trying to create chaos in the North to bring the Army and Police into disrepute, he added.
Maj Gen Hathurusinghe said this at a gathering of clergy, representatives of Jaffna community, administrative officials and journalists at the Jaffna District Secretariat.
The Jaffna SF Commander said some unscrupulous groups are trying to distort the prevailing situation in Jaffna giving a wrong impression to the world, especially during this local government election season. “Some incidents of looting and burglaries are not specific only to Jaffna and those incidents normally take place everywhere in the island,” he said.
