Police probe letter on social media warning of another attack

The Police have launched an investigation into a letter circulating on social media warning of another ‘Easter Sunday’ style attack on hotels.

The letter had reportedly been sent to multiple hotels claiming it was issued by the Police in Fort.

However the Colombo Gazette is unable to confirm if hotels in the Fort area have received the letter.

Police Headquarters said that the contents of the letter has not been verified and so an investigation has been launched.

The letter had warned that attempts are being made to carry out attacks on hotels similar to the deadly Easter Sunday attacks linked to ISIS.

However the Police are investigating the basis on which the letter was issued, if it is authentic and if an attempt is being made to disrupt the peace by making false claims.
