Petty political crimes have taken an ugly twist in Jaffna with local government elections around the corner.
Valikamam South West municipal council election candidate Shanmugam Sivakumar said the head of a dog was found stuck on top of his gate on Thursday (7) morning, while the dog’s body was laid out on his doorstep.
Also on the same morning, TNA Manipay organizer Kadiravelu Gaurikanthan’s front yard was found to be flooded with sewage waste water. “We heard a noise around 1 a.m. in the morning, but we didn’t check on it. Tractors usually use the road. Later however, we saw what had happened, and noticed the tracks of a bowser outside. We think people are doing these things to scare us, since we are election contestants,” Gaurikanthan said.
