UC chairman fears for his life

The Chairman of the Kolonnawa Urban Council Raveendra Udaya Shantha says his life is under threat and he hopes to reveal more information regarding the threats.
Udaya Shantha says on several occasions he had requested for security from the government but had been provided security only for his house and office and not when he moves around.
His brother had been abducted last February and has not been heard of since while there was also an attempt to abduct him last year.
Udaya Shantha says he fears his brother may have been killed after being abducted last year.
He says that following the failed attempt to abduct him as well last year a similar attempt may be made again. (Colombo Gazette)
