Vadamaradchi East protesters intimidated by Sri Lankan military

The Sri Lankan military has threatened residents of Chundikulam, in Vadamaradchi East, Jaffna, for protesting against land grabs by the state.

On Thursday, residents of Chundikulam staged a protest outside a Maruthankerni Divisional Secretariat, demanding the immediate return of their lands confiscated by the state for the construction of a wildlife sanctuary.

Protesters were shocked to see Sri Lankan soldiers waiting outside their homes and threatening them when they returned from the protest.
