A private firm is in the process of buying strategically placed high value lands for meager sums, without making the owners aware of the real value.
A very powerful Magnetic Field line is going through Maravanpulavu and Thanankilappu in Thenmaradchchi and this firm had already purchased some lands in the area. The fact that, they are purchasing the lands outright, without leasing or renting them, with an intention of selling them to a foreign country, it is suspected.
Several countries including the US has positioned their Space Research Centres and Rocket Launching pads on such Magnetic Field lines.
While there are many parched lands are available, these land are being purchased in guise of setting up wind mills by a company with Head Office in Colombo.
It is notable that TAMIL DIPLOMAT reported that the former Indian President and leading Scientist, Abdul Kalam had commented the same area as suitable for space Research.
