Sri Lankan military watches over Hindu ceremony at temple inside HSZ


The Sri Lankan military oversaw the running of a religious ceremony at a temple located inside a High Security Zone this week, reports a military website.


Devotees from the Palali Rajarajeswary Amman, Gnana Vairavar, Myliddy Kannagi Amman and Murugan Temples had to seek military permission in order to hold ceremonies at their places of worship, which continue to be inside the army cantonment, accessible only to the armed forces.


Villagers were loaded onto military buses and escorted to and from the temples on Sunday, by troops from the 515 Brigade and 16th Battalion the Gamunu Watch.
