Attempt to fence people’s lands at Kepapulavu (Mullaitheevu) prevented by people

The attempt by Forest Department to fence off the lands belonging to the people by the forest Department officials were thwarted by the people day before yesterday. Already, people’s ancient lands are under the control of the Army. People are now living in a model village close by.

In this context, the Forest Department Officials had gone there to rob further parts of their own lands. When they tried to plant boundary stones saying that they are demarcating Forest Department land, people have prevented their attempt. Following this they have left asking the people to bring their deeds to  the Department Office  in Mulliyawallai.
