The General Secretary of the Ravana Balaya, the Venerable Ittekande Saddhatissa Thero, said that if the members of the ‘Aava’ sword gang in the North are not arrested the monks will form a group to counter the ‘Aava’ sword gang.
The Police have already launched an operation to look for members of the ‘Aava’ sword gang in the North, Minister of Law and Order Sagala Ratnayake told Parliament this week.
He said that the shooting incident in Jaffna recently, where two Jaffna university students were killed, involved police officers who were looking for ‘Aava’ sword gang members.
He also said that a comprehensive investigation was launched into the death of the two youth and that forensic expertise had been sought. (Colombo Gazette)
