Sri Lankan police disrupted Tamils who were conducting volunteer services in preparation for Maaveerar Naal at the Maveerar Thuyilum Illam in Theravil, Visuvamadu on Monday.
Local community members and family members of fallen LTTE cadres laid down tributes to the fallen before carrying out the work.
Dharmapuram police, army personnel and military intelligence personnel arrived at the scene and recorded the names of the volunteers present.
They told the team to obtain permission from the relevant divisional council to carry out the preparatory work and to follow the health regulations.
Members of the working group have said that all arrangements will be made to organise this year’s commemoration events for Maaveerar as usual and in accordance with the coronavirus rules. The group has further requested those attending on November 27 to follow the coronavirus rules.
A similar incident took place in Kilinochchi earlier this week when Sri Lankan police, citing coronavirus, disrupted Tamils who were clearing the Kanagapuram Thuyilum Illam.
