The villagers of the ancient Tamil village of Kumuzha-munai in Karai-thu’raip-pattu division of Mullaith-theevu district on Tuesday evening laid siege to a 16-member group of Sinhala Theravada Buddhist extremists from the South, who had come with a Buddha statue, which they wanted to erect at Kurunthoor-malai, a place with traces of ancient heritage in the country of Eezham Tamils. The group, led by two young monks, consisted mostly of Sinhala youth. The SL Forest Department guards also assisted them. The villagers alleged SL military intelligence personnel wearing civilian clothes were also in the group. The SL Police, providing escort to the group, had to withdraw from the intruders to the police station. Full story >>
