SL “Terrorist” investigators allegedly plant bomb at TNA MP's office in Ki'linochchi

[TamilNet, Saturday, 12 January 2013, 12:32 GMT]
The Sri Lankan “Terrorist” Investigation Department (TID) personnel, who receive instructions from SL Defence Secretary and presidential sibling Gotabhaya Rajapaksa “recovered” C4 explosives from the office of the Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian Sritharan in a move to trap the Tamil parliamentarian, on Saturday, sources close to the TNA MP told TamilNet. The SL-TID operatives who came to the office with a TNA supporter who had campaigned for Sritharan during the election, planted the explosives inside the office and “discovered” them, the sources close to the Tamil parliamentarian alleged. The latest move by the TID, deployed in systematic campaign against the democratic voices of Eezham Tamils, only indicates the level of paranoia prevailing in the Colombo Establishment at the moment, the sources further said.

On Friday, the SL-TID investigators arrested Mr Vasanthan, a TNA supporter who had campaigned for the election of Sritharan.

The SL-TID operatives stormed the office of the MP Saturday evening alleging that they had arrested Mr Vasanthan and that they wanted to search the office to locate the explosives.

At the time of writing of this news, the SL-TID operatives are “interrogating” 38-year-old Velamaalikithan, who was at the office of the TNA MP. The interrogation is taking place at the spot itself.

As a tactic to suppress the democratic protests by the students of the University of Jaffna in November, the SL-TID had come up with an alleged accusation of “bomb attack” on Sri-TELO office in order to bring the students under “Terrorist” investigations.
