Attacked GS officer gets harassed while SL police pleads to drop protests

By TamilNet Newswire - Fri Jun 10, 7:05 pm

‘Unknown’ callers, believed to be military intelligence operatives of genocidal Sri Lanka, have threatened Shanmugam Guru, the Tamil village (GS) officier who was brutally assaulted on 01 June for inquiring into illegal logging carried out by Sinhala military personnel at Kudumpi-malai, an interior Tamil village that has been subjected to demographic and structural genocide since the end of war in 2007 in Batticaloa. The calling operatives are threatening the GS officer stating that they would launch counter protests deploying some women against him with false accusations. In the meantime, the SL police officials visiting the injured GS officer to investigate the brutal assault have been politely urging the GS villager to ask his protesting colleagues to drop their protests. Kudumpimalai is situated 63 km northwest of Batticaloa city.

The anonymous callers are threatening the GS officer to drop the police case, fellow GS officials told TamilNet.

Some of the investigating officials have also urged Mr Guru to forget the incident and interpret it as a ‘bad accident’.

Initially, a few soldiers were detained, but they were all released later, legal sources in Batticaloa said.
