SL Minister, Councillor behind veiled threats to LRC Director in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 March 2017, 19:27 GMT]
A SL Deputy Minister and a member of the Eastern Provincial Council were issuing veiled threats to Batticaloa District Director of Land Reforms Commission, Mr Wimalraj Nesakumar, who later survived a brutal assassination attempt on 22 February at Ka値uthaava値ai, informed civil sources in Batticaloa told TamilNet on Thursday. Both the SL minister and the EPC councillor were trying to instruct the LRC Deputy Director to desist from objecting illegal land grab in Tha値aavaay, situated in Ea池aavoor-pattu divison, the sources further said.

Prior to the assassination attempt, Mr Wimalraj had complained to his superiors at the LRC in Colombo, specifically mentioning the names of the SL Deputy Minister and the EPC Councillor, who are Tamil-speaking Muslims from Batticaloa.

Mr Wimalraj narrowly escaped assassination after being shot thrice by two unknown attackers at the entrance of his residence at Ka値uthaa-va値ai.

In the meantime, SL Police had detained a security guard attached to Batticaloa District Secretariat, for 48 hours after producing the person at the Circuit Magistrate's Court at Ea'raavoor. The detained person was released on Wednesday.

Mr Wimalraj is being treated at a private hospital in Colombo.
