Don’t create race riots between Tamil and Muslim people, requested the Vavuniya Police OIC, Mahintha Wilvorachchi.
The OIC, Vavuniya Police met the Civil Organizations of Vavuniya Town, Vairavarpuliyankulam, Katkuli, Thonickal at the Vavuniya Town Grama Officer’s Office and had discussions with them day before yesterday. He said as above while speaking in the meeting.
Elaborating further he said, ” You all know about the untoward incidents that are occurring in Vavuniya and the burning down of the shops in front of mosque in recent times. Some people had tried to create confrontation between Tamils and Muslims. People should identify them and act with vigilance.
One faction is also spreading rumours regarding the shop in Vepankulam area catching fire. As the forthcoming periods are festival times, youths speeding in motor cycles under influence of liquor and mobbing the streets in groups hindering people will create problems. Severe action will be taken on such people. You should discipline your own children.” , he said.
When one person complained that youth are committing outrages activities in Vairava Puliyankulam and Kurumankadu areas, he said that police will undertake patrolling these areas.
