Home of local council member and priest vandalised in Jaffna

The home of a local council member, a Hindu priest and a community organisation’s office in Jaffna were all vandalised by unknown persons earlier this week.

The homes, all in the village of Achchuveli, were damaged on the evening of August 4th.

Gates leading to the homes of N Rasenthiran, a local council member for Valikamam East, and of the local priest for the Paththameni Thethamkulam Pillayar Temple were damaged, alongside the Idaikaadu Community organisation and an affiliated Mother-Child office.

The damage is estimated to cost at least Rs. 70,000.

Sri Lankan police report that they have arrested one Tamil youth over the incident, with investigations still ongoing.
