    [TamilNet, January 13, 2006 14:34 GMT]

    A group of Sinhalese residents in Abeyapura, a suburb in Trincomalee town, Friday afternoon around 4 p.m. attacked the vehicle of Mr.Jayantha Wijeysekara, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) parliamentarian of Trincomalee district when he was traveling through the area. Sri Lanka policemen rushed to the scene of the incident and rescued Mr Wijeysekara from being manhandled by the angry crowd, police sources said.

    The incident took place on the second day of the four-day general shut down (hartal) organized by the Sinhala Vimukthi Front (SVF), which began Thursday and entered second day Friday. The vehicle in which Mr. Wijeysekara was traveling towards Trincomalee town was stopped at Abeyapura junction by a group of Sinhala people. When he got down he was accused by the crowd for organizing the hartal thus creating tension and animosity between various communities in the east port town, sources in the area said.

    The vehicle was damaged and the police used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

    Mr. Wijeysekara returned to his residence in Kantalai unharmed, police sources said.

    Mahinda wants to protect his partymen and JVPers from similar attacks in future when village lads come in sealed coffins from the NORTH.

    Thanks Attanayaka,

    This foolish Govt. is waging war against the innocent LTTE community.What a shame !. When the UNP was in power non of the police officer bow down their head to any politician.This gov.is ruining what UNP has done to uplift the police service.

    Those LTTERS are real Hindus and follow Hinduism to the every letter of the book.I know them very well, because they are very similar to the characters of many UNPers.

    When they walk on the street take every precautions not to harm even a ant!

    Now as attanayake said current burning problem is how to stop this police transfers.Look ajan is a good Samaritan and bring this information very happily to our knowledge.

    May the good God look upon you guys.
