Sri Lankan military oversees Hindu ceremony in HSZ

The Sri Lankan army oversaw Tamils in Jaffna who held a religious ceremony at a temple located in a High Security Zone (HSZ) earlier this month.

Hundreds of devotees, including TNA MP Mavai Senathirajah, were boarded onto military buses and escorted to and from the Manampirai Pillayar Temple and Naga Temple, situated within the Palali Army Cantonments.

The ceremony was permitted to go ahead with permission from Commander Security Force Jaffna Major General Mahesh Senanayaka, troops of 7th Battalion of Gajaba Regiment and 2nd Battalina of Gamun Watch said a military website.
