More Security For Jaffna

Aug 25, 2011 12:51:43 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Sri Lanka Army has deployed more troops in Jaffna with additional foot and mobile patrols to assist the police in maintaining law and order in the area.

The move had been made following Monday’s violence in Navanthurai over rumors of a grease devil roaming in the area.

Jaffna Security Forces Commander Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe has said no one would be allowed to take the law into their hands and attack the police or security forces.

He has warned that those who were armed with clubs, stones, swords, knives, sand and petrol-filled bottles for the purpose of attacking law enforcement officers would be branded as terrorists.

Major General Hathurusinghe has said that no one would be allowed to fulfill the ulterior motives of frustrated war mongers.
