Probe launched after large crowds gather for religious event

An investigation has been launched after large crowds gathered for a religious event in Batticaloa.

Images shared on Facebook showed large crowds attending a Hindu religious event in Batticaloa.

The event had reportedly been held at the Mamangam temple in Batticaloa.

G. Cassilingham, Coordinating Secretary to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, tweeted saying that it was unfortunate that the incident took place at a time when people have been urged to remain cautious against the coronavirus.

Cassilingham said he spoke to officials and the Police on the ground and an investigation was now underway. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This is the outcome when corrupt and foolish politicians recklessly allow the population to breed like rabbits. South Asia has failed to capitalise the huge human resources. Now the world power is about to reduce those population. Indians are daydreaming that the West is in their side to make them superpower. The same West ripped off South Asia and divided it such a way it has no chance to come up. Insulting Gandhi will not take you anywhere. Surely, Indians will learn the reality in due time.
