The Sri Lankan military has been caught on camera stealing thousands of litres of water from a private well in Mullaithivu district.

 

Following a complaint from a land owner in Kanukkerni village in the Thaneer Utru sector of Mullaithivu district, a local councillor, accompanied by a group journalists, visited the private land, where Sri Lankan soldiers were caught extracting large quantities of water.

 

According to the locals, many wells in the vicinity of the land in question had dried up as result of the water theft by the Sri Lankan military.
