India assures security of Sri Lankan institutions in Tamil Nadu

Jan 26, 2011 10:06:16 AM - itnnews.lk

The Indian High Commission of India in Colombo has given an assurance to the Sri Lankan Government that necessary action will be taken to ensure the safety and security of the Sri Lankan institutions in the Tamil Nadu.

The assurances comes following a request made by the Sri Lankan Government to provide security for all the Sri Lankan pilgrims visiting Chennai in the wake of an attack on the Maha Bodhi Society Temple in Chennai on Monday. An unidentified gang of 10-15 persons armed with clubs carried out an attack on the Sri Lanka Maha Bodhi Centre in Egmore, Chennai on Monday night.

The Indian High Commission has assured Sri Lanka’s Ministry of External Affairs that a full investigation would be carried out into the attack on the Temple and informed that two suspects have already been taken into custody in this regard.
