A person has been arrested following a complaint lodged by Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP S. Sritharan at Kilinochchi Police against several persons who have made death threats.
When contacted yesterday (23), he said several persons had engaged in illegal sand mining in Kilinochchi District recently and he has stopped them.
“This made them react violently and later on, I received several death threats from four different phone numbers. However, after I lodged the Police compliant, the suspects stopped calling,” he said.
Speaking further, Sritharan alleged several persons had engaged in illegal sand mining in the past few days in Murasumoddai and no one has permission to mine sand in the area. “If the Government fails to take action, we will intervene and prevent all mafia activities in our electorates,” he added.
